The Eurobest Young Creatives Competition gives participants the chance to gain recognition within the industry and make their mark across Europe. Over the years, eurobest Young Creatives, part of the Cannes Lions family, has become a true celebration of European creativity where young professionals have the opportunity to showcase their talent and achievements.

Teams of two must create an integrated campaign in response to a brief set by a charity or non-profit organisation, whose name, objectives, strategies and target audience are kept secret until the live competition briefing on 25 November.

The Young Creatives Competition welcomes Art Directors, Brand Marketers, Copywriters, Strategists & Planners, Account Managers, PR Executives and other branded creative communications talents to compete.

This is a fantastic training ground for teams with their eye on competing in Cannes Young Lions in 2023.

As Festival Representatives, IAPI organises a national competition to select teams to represent Ireland. Teams must be made up of 2 young working professionals, aged 30 or under, employed by IAPI member agencies, born on or after 30/11/1991.

*Please note, you must be available to compete across the weekend of the 25 - 28th November.

Those that are interested in taking part can express their interest to katherine@iapi.com by Friday 30th September. The selection process will take place in the week commencing 10th October and teams will be confirmed prior to 1st November.
