Attention Young Creators!

One day, one brief and one jury – are you ready to take on the challenge? Showcase your creative talent at the 2016 Young Lions Print Competition on April 15, 2016 Beirut, Lebanon and win the chance to compete on a global scale at the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity in Cannes, France.

The Cannes Lions are the most prestigious awards in the advertising industry and gather the best and brightest communication professionals around the world for a week in June each year. This is your chance to gain valuable recognition and put your team on the advertising map.

How does it work?

The National Young Lions Print Competition, organized by Executive Magazine in cooperation with the International Advertising Association Lebanon chapter and the Advertising Agencies Association, aims to give young professionals aged 30 and under the space to unleash their creativity and test their skills against their peers. Teams of two will be given a brief on the day of the competition and 7 hours to produce a print ad. The work will be judged by a jury of head creative directors of advertising agencies, and the winning team will be sponsored to compete internationally at Cannes Lions Festival.

First-place winners of the competition will receive

  • A trip to Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity (including travel and accommodation).
  • The chance to participate in the global Young Lions competition and compete with other young creative talents from around the world.
  • The opportunity to showcase their work to the Cannes Lions jury — composed of top professionals working in the industry.
  • A chance to win the top prize in Cannes, which means that they will be invited to return to the Festival the following year (with accommodation and registration paid by the Festival). They will also be rewarded on stage at the prestigious Cannes Lions Awards Show.
