ABOUT

Círculo Creativo USA, supporting National CineMedia (NCM) with the U.S. Young Lions competitions, is the administrator of the official U.S. Hispanic "Young Creatives Contest." Only participating teams that are working at a U.S. Hispanic agency or on a Hispanic account can participate.

The first place winning team will be partially sponsored to attend the Cannes Lions Festival in June 2019 to participate in the global Young Film Lions competition as “TEAM USA HISPANIC” competing against teams from all over the world. During the Festival week, the global Young Lions competitions offer these winning teams from around the world an opportunity to compete against each other and showcase their talent globally. Winning the competitions would be a hugely rewarding experience that could change a career forever.


IMPORTANT

Participating teams that are not from a U.S. Hispanic Agency or working on a Hispanic account are not eligible to participate in this competition. For more information about the broader 2019 US Young Lions Competitions, please visit http://canneslions.ncm.com/young-lions
 
Participating teams can only participate in one or the other competition. Failure to do so will result in disqualification.
