There are a lot of sites where you can take a look at this years Cannes Lion campaigns (for example here, here and of course here). Instead we’d like to feature this years Future Lions at the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity. Presented by AKQA since 2006 the Cannes Future Lions are a student/junior competition basically designed to challenge conventional thinking. The Future Lions 2012 had more than 1000 entries from over 40 countries all based on the same brief as every other year: “Advertise a product or 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 looking for global fame and a guaranteed job here is your chance. First though take a look at the 5 outstanding winners 2012:
