You still have a shot at winning a trip to Cannes Lions, industry recognition, and the experience of a lifetime.
Good news for busy young media stars. So many of you asked for an extension to enter the Yahoo! Young Media Stars competition that we’ve decided to grant one. The new deadline is Sunday, May 5, at 11:59 p.m. PST. That means you have about six more days to get in your application, and if you’re really gung-ho, make an optional entry video too.
If you’ve already submitted an application, you can use this extension to make a video and include it in your entry. Email the link to your video to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you’ve already submitted your application and video, you can relax—for a little while.
Videos will be now posted in the dedicated Young Media Stars section on the Yahoo! Advertising Facebook page on May 7. Encourage your colleagues, friends, and family members to vote for your video from May 7 to May 13. Remember, we’ll award 5 bonus points to the video that best demonstrates originality and creativity, and 5 bonus points to the video that receives the highest number of votes on our Facebook page. Winners will be announced May 22.
Here’s additional information to inspire and educate you on the competition:

Remember, the deadline for applications and video entries is May 5. You’ll kick yourself if you don’t go for this rare, career-boosting opportunity. Register to enter here. And as they say in Cannes, “Bon chance!”
