The Roar of Young Lions

Creatives under the age of 28 are competing to win a trip to Cannes to take part in the Young Lions contest at the Cannes Lions International Advertising Festival.
To enter the challenge, teams were given 48 hours last week to make a commercial for Oxfam. The spots are now available on YouTube, and teams have been asked to help their spot go viral (a flawed notion IMO). As you might imagine, AdPulp is now being sent regular email inquiries about running spots made by various competitors.

About David Burn

I wrote my first ad for a political candidate when I was 17 years old. She won her race and I felt the seductive power of advertising for the first time. Today—after working for seven agencies in five states—I am head of brand strategy and creative at Bonehook in Portland, Oregon.
