Since 2006, AKQA have presented the Future Lions at the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity. A student/junior competition designed to challenge thinking in ways they couldn’t be produced 5 years ago. Global fame and guaranteed jobs await the winners, with the 2012 Future Lions having over 1000 entries and producing 5 outstanding winners.
Future Lions come from over 40 countries, and are given the same brief every year…”Advertise a product from a brand in a way that couldn’t have been done five years ago, to an audience of your choosing.” So if you’re a student. Give it a crack for 2013.
