AKQA announced the five winners of this year’s Future Lions, recognizing the best creative ideas from students across the world during the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity.
The Future Lions competition was created some 13 years ago to acknowledge the world’s best creative ideas and reward students behind them for their brilliance with a trip to Cannes Lions Festival of Creativity. This year, the competitions attracted 2,290 participants from 386 schools across 55 countries, making it the most successful year to date.
Participants were tasked to come up with ideas that “create tomorrow” and explore how technology can transform the world. The competition does not require the students actually to create or build a prototype of their ideas. However, the concepts presented must be truly innovative.
Michelle Lassman, AKQA group creative director, said in a statement:
“The new generation of talent has unprecedented power to shape the future, as this year’s Future Lions winners demonstrate. These students boldly showcased inspirational and innovative thinking with ideas that have a positive impact on our world.”
