IAPI sends a record 14 Young Lions to Cannes

The Institute of Advertising Practitioners of Ireland (IAPI) has announced the winning teams to represent Ireland at the annual international Cannes Lions Festival in June. This year, 14 creative young people will compete against teams from all over the world in film, design, print, PR, social media and marketing competitions in the South of France festival.

It is the largest number of Irish Young Lions since the festival’s inception 60 years ago. Over 200 advertising aces vied for a place on the team by entering the IAPI Young Irish Lions competition held in February and March.
