Are you a young creative: Make an ad.. Go to Cannes this June

Just received this announcement from a loyal 360east reader (hi Dina!) about a competition by the Cannes Lions Advertising Festival that will take the winner to attend this prestigious ad event and compete in the Young Lions Film Competition.

Cannes Lions You Tube Contest

MAKE AN AD

At midnight on 15 May (GMT), YouTube will release a brief on
www.youtube.com/canneslions for a 60-second ad for a major charity. Anyone
born after 27 June 1980 can submit an ad to this channel until midnight, 17
May. The more creative the better!

SPREAD THE WORD

Making the video is just half the job. Entrants will have two weeks to drive
as many people to their YouTube video as possible. Embed it, blog about it,
tweet it – whatever it takes.

GO TO CANNES

At the end of those two weeks, our panel of judges will award two prizes to
two video entries (one entrant per video). The prize? An all-expenses paid
trip to Cannes to take part in the Young Lions Film Competition as Team
YouTube.

I am too old to apply :-) and not an advertising guy anyway. But I’d love to see some Jordanian talent make it to Cannes..

So mark the date.
