Future Lions is AKQA’s global student competition in collaboration with Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity, now in its 11th year. This year, students are invited to 'Start Something'. With a focus on ideas that move the world, AKQA is proud to announce Google as the official partner for Future Lions.
A global celebration of bold and progressive thinking, Future Lions has now launched the careers of over 60 of the most talented creatives. The brief: connect people to an idea from a global brand in a way not possible three years ago. There are no boundaries or restrictions on which industries or media are chosen. The 2016 deadline for entries is 6 April at 18:00 GMT.
The five winning ideas will be celebrated on stage at the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity in June. The winners will receive the prestigious Future Lions trophy, and full access to the Festival. An exclusive rooftop celebration will take place after the ceremony for all the winners with the judges, industry luminaries and previous Future Lions winners.
Alongside the individual awards, the school with the highest number of shortlisted entries will be recognised as the Future Lions School of the Year.
