The Brief #1 - Winners

The Brief. Diversity, networking & creativity in action.

We partnered with The World Woman Foundation - a non-profit organisation that aims to empower women on a global scale. In 2022 they will rebrand and relaunch a Young Female Entrepreneurs Program to register 500 young females.

The challenge to LIONS Members was to create a clear, concise and eye-catching campaign in only 3 weeks, before presenting to an international jury. Here are the results.

All submissions to The Brief were reviewed and scored by the jury, using the Official Cannes Lions Judging System. A shortlist of five was selected who then presented live via Zoom.
