Ad Age invited young creatives from all over the world for the sixth year to design the cover of our Cannes Issue that is distributed at the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity. In the spirit of Cannes' own "Young Lions" contests, the sixth annual Ad Age Young Creatives Cover Competition is open to creatives ages 30 and under. The goal is to inspire young creatives to participate in an important industry gathering and offer a career-enhancing opportunity to those who are still junior in the business and might not be at Cannes yet.
For the 2015, the creative brief was Stretch your imagination, and show us a cover design that you believe captures the meaning of creativity in 2015.
To me, Creativity means showing the guts to do or to think what is meant to be impossible. It is the movement against the odds and dangers. It is the risk taking job that delivers positive energy and the happiness!
Among 400 entries from all over the world, it was selected as one of the 12 finalists of talented creatives.
The winning design and all 12 finalists' work featured on billboards outside the Majestic Hotel during the Cannes Lions festival.
