Celebrating its 60th anniversary, Cannes Lions is one of advertising’s elite events and brings together the top creative minds from around the world. At Cannes, our three Young Media Stars will attend educational sessions, network with Yahoo! executives and industry leaders, and wine and dine in style on the famed Cote d’Azur.
To enter, go to our online registration page and answer a few short questions on the application to show what makes you a Young Media Star. Applications will be judged on their originality, creativity, persuasiveness, and industry knowledge. For extra points, you can create a short video of yourself (no more than 90 seconds) via Flickr, which will be posted to the Yahoo! Advertising Facebook Page on a special tab dedicated to Yahoo! Young Media Stars 2013. We’ll award five bonus points to the video that best demonstrates originality and creativity, and five bonus points to the video that receives the highest number of “votes” on our Young Media Stars Facebook page. For rules, FAQs, and tips for entering, visit the registration page. To see what it takes to win, check out videos from last year’s Yahoo! Young Media Stars, Marisa Wong and Mike Murphy.
Entries close on April 30, and winners will be announced on May 16. This year’s winners will chronicle their adventures in the Yahoo! Advertising Blog, as Marisa and Mike did last year, so stay tuned.
