AIB duo named as IAPI’s young marketers

Chloe Barton and Ciara Brennan from AIB are the winners of the young marketers’ category in IAPI’s Cannes Young Lions competition sponsored by Core. Barton and Brennan will represent Ireland in the worldwide contest at this year’s Cannes Lions festival in the south of France in June. They will compete against marketing talent from over 100 countries.

This year’s young marketers’ entries were judged by Shane Doyle, Core; Rory Hamilton, Boys and Girls; Emer Howard, Ringers; Enda Falvey, Dept of Housing, Planning and Local Government and Dave Bass, Kerry Foods. Cannes Lions is an eight-day festival of creative thinking, digital innovation, education and networking, attended by about 20,000 delegates.

IAPI announced six creative teams in all to represent Team Ireland at the festival. Core also had success in the Cannes Young Lions as Alice Sheehan from Zenith and Jamie Fullam from Core won the media category for their Epilepsy Ireland submission.
