On 17 June, Cannes Lions announced the winners of the 2021 Young Lions competitions, who each produced work for One Young World across all seven competitions.

One Young World worked with Cannes Lions to set a series of briefs across all seven competitions in Design, Digital, Film, Marketers, Media, PR and Print.

The Global Young Lions Competitions were the culmination of global competitions held in over 50 countries to win places to compete in the final round, which was held in parallel with the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity every year. Teams of young creatives aged 30 and under competed in 7 different categories, and had 24 hours to create a campaign for each brief.

The entries were judged by dedicated juries awarded Gold, Silver and Bronze in each competition. The seven Gold winning teams (14 individuals) will receive a pass and accommodation to the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity 2022 as well as recognition in front of the Global industry during Cannes Lions Live 21 - 25 June 2021.

One Young World has also announced that each winner will receive digital Summit access for the One Young World Summit in July.

The Competitions are sponsored by Getty Images and The International Communications Consultancy Organisation (ICCO) and are running from 24 May - 14 June. The winners were announced on 17 June and will be recognised throughout Cannes Lions Live which runs from 21-25 June.

Congratulations to the winners!
