AKQA in association with the Cannes Advertising Festival has just announced a competition called "The Future Lions" for all college students from across the globe. The event is a chance to help students showcase their work to employers much before they pass out of college or ad schools. The competition also helps showcase work done by the future superstars of advertising.
The Future Lions site at www.futurelions.com includes loads of information like a creative brief, FAQ's, winning tips from AKQA's Executive Creative Directors, downloadable posters and an online submission form.
The winners of the “Future Lions” will be announced on Tuesday, June 20th at the Cannes International Advertising Festival in a seminar titled “Hire Them Before they Steal your Job: Meet the World's Most Forward-Thinking Students”. The seminar will feature the top five entries of the competition giving attendees a first crack at a fiercely talented crop of ad students about to enter the workforce.
The deadline for submissions is May 21, 11:59 p.m. PST. There is NO ENTRANCE FEE and few creative restrictions. The competition is an exceptional way for students to attract the attention of the world's most influential agencies.
