Film advert competition will see local work showcased in SA and at Cannes


Are you 28 years old or younger? Are you working in an agency and chomping at the bit to boost your career? Are you ready to see your work up on the big screen? If so, you need to register for the Cinemark Cannes Young Lions 2014 Film Competition.  Not only will a winning entry secure you a spot at one of the world’s most exciting and prestigious advertising awards, your work will also feature on the big screen at Ster-Kinekor theatres across the country.

Entrants will have 48 hours to film and edit a 60-second commercial on any HD camera.  Registration is currently open and the competition will run from 12h00 on Tuesday the 11th of March until 12h00 on Thursday the 13th of March. You must register to enter.

While the brief will only be made available to all entrants on the 11th, Cinemark has hinted that the brief will centre heavily on a topical issue.

Cannes Lions has more than 90 representatives from the various countries around the world. What is evident in these regions is that it is the actual Young Lions competitors or their respective ad agencies that fund the trip to Cannes. In South Africa, Cinemark has assumed that sole responsibility.  However it is uncertain as to how much longer the media sales company will be able to continue as such. Hence it is imperative that young creatives take full advantage of this privilege now.

The prize includes: flights, accommodation and a full weeks registration at the advertising awards festival.
