How the UK Competition Works
A brief will be set by the PRCA's Charity Partner (to be revealed at a later date) who will act as the client, and participating teams will be given 24 hours to create a campaign.
The UK competition will replicate the Cannes Lions competition as much as possible.
The cost to enter is £300+vat per team for PRCA Members, and £500+vat per team for non-members. The competition is only to consultancies. The UK competition will take place over an identical timeframe as the Cannes Young Lions PR Competition, but during a working day: Thursday, 7th March, 2019, 10:00 - Friday, 8th March, 2019, 10:00 (24 hours). The brief is provided by a UK Charity. It will be circulated by email at 10:00 on Thursday, 7th March.
Completed campaigns will need to be emailed back to the PRCA by 10:00 on Friday, 8th March- in the form of a 10 page PowerPoint presentation, a 1 page summary slide and a written submission of no more than 450 words delivered as a Word document. Campaigns will then be judged by a UK Jury.
A shortlist of 6 campaigns will be invited to London on Wednesday, 20th March, 2019 to deliver a 5 minute presentation to the Jury, explaining the PR campaign.
The winning team will be notified by Thursday, 21st March, 2019.
UK Competition Rules
Only two participants from the same consultancy are required to form a team, and consultancies are welcome to enter multiple teams. Each participant must be aged 30 years or younger (born after 22nd June, 1988), and able to travel to Cannes 17th-21st June, 2019.
