Are you 26 or under? Are you creative? Good...

Then you're eligible to enter this year's Young Shark competition.

The challenge this year is to create a clever social media based piece to promote the Shark Awards Festival. It could be a smart hack of an existing social platform or a bespoke piece that would work in a non-traditional online media format.

Your idea should help the audience to perceive the Shark Awards Festival as a contemporary, fun International advertising festival worth being a part of.

The Prize

There is a fantastic prize up for grabs and the winner will be Kinsale Sharks guest at the festival which includes 4 Days as Festival Delegate, Travel, Accommodation & invitation to 2 exclusive Jury Dinners (with amazing guestlists for a Young Creative to get some one on one time with.)

The Brief

You can find further details of the brief in the link on the right hand side of this page or visit Kinsale

The winning idea does not have to be restricted by budget or production considerations. In other words, the best idea wins (even if it never gets made). And...that's it. The work will be judged on the originality and creativity of the idea. Entries do not have to be highly finished as it's a great idea we're interested in, your idea just needs to be clear.

Cut off for entries is 5pm June 24th 2019. GOOD LUCK!
