IAPI, thanks to our generous sponsors, will provide the competition winners with an all expenses paid trip to the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity, 20-24 June 2020 including a Young Lions full week festival pass, flights Dublin/Nice, accommodation, and access to all the Cannes seminars, award ceremonies, showcases and material.

Global Young Lions competition will once again be digital in 2022. In advance of arrival in Cannes you will compete in the international heat of your competition against the best young creative talent in the world. This decision has been made by Cannes Lions International for a number of reasons including making competing equitable and fair for all globally, even those in countries with lower vaccine rates plus avoiding additional costs e.g. testing, quarantine hotels for those travelling from further afield. IAPI will still bring all seven winning teams to the festival in June as their prize but the international competition will already have run over a three-week period from 16th May to 7th June prior to travel.

If you win, you get up on the stage at gala night in front of thousands of people, and will probably get a big pay increase from your impressed boss!

The winning work is also available to the charities to incorporate into their marketing campaigns.
