Fairfax, Australia's representatives for the Cannes International Advertising Festival, is once again running the ‘must win’ event for every aspiring young creative in the industry UNDER 28. A trip to Cannes is again up for grabs for the best young creative team in Australia. As with previous years, creative teams of two are asked to complete a newspaper brief and submit it to Fairfax.
The 2006 Australian Cannes judges will then analyse every entry and pick one winning team that will represent Australia at the World Young Lion competition in Cannes during the Festival in June.
To be eligible you must be:
- a team comprising of one writer and one art director/graphic designer.
Both team members must be:
- aged 28 years or under (ie born after 26th June 1977)
- be an Australian citizen or permanent resident
- be currently employed by an advertising agency in Australia
The brief is now posted on the
  • website (Click on the Sydney Morning Herald section... you'll see it there.)
    But hurry, the deadline is 5pm this Friday March 24th, 2006.

    That's great. You can see an example of the media in today's SMH or The Age. I'll just pop down to the newsagency IN FUCKING PERTH and ask for one. What's that. You don't have a copy.

    The newsagent on the corner of Adelaide Terrace and Victoria Ave in Perth stocks all national papers, including both the SMH and the Age.

    Pull your finger out you stupid and lazy deadshit. The first thing you'll need to win this is a bit of fucking initiative.

    The entries for the Australian competition will be judged on Wednesday, April 12. Should know that day who gets the Cannes trip but not sure if Fairfax will announce it that day or put on some sort of function soon after.
