Cannes Young Lions and YouTube... The Future Sure Looks Bright

Greetings... I once said a few weeks back if you take a day or two away from the "bloggosphere" the world passes you by.

After spending the last few days in bed fighting a Bacterial Pneumonia and living off on antibiotics, a word from and to the wise... "be careful what lives in dust and mold".


That said, laptop at my side I spent a couple of hours scanning through what seems to be a billion entries to the YouTube Cannes Young Lions 48 Hour Ad Contest.
YouTube and Cannes Lions have partnered to search for two young creatives to win an all-expenses paid trip to this year's Festival and fill a new 38th place as Team YouTube in the 2009 Young Lions Film Competition.

Here are few that have caught my eye for many a reason. Brilliant concepts that get a point across only to fail when they over "info dump" details, the concept that gets lost behind "over production" and the few others that simple proved as always "K.I.S.S." (simplicity rules)... really the bottom line here is the future of creative looks very bright.

Some the finishing qualities make the contest seem unfair... there is professional broadcast quality editing and then there are those that look like someone needed a sharper pair of scissors when they edited their pixels.

These are not presented in order and the link provided will take you to the "voting" site where you can give these entries your own approval (thumbs-up) or disapproval (thumbs-down).

I look forward June 2nd when the world will know the winning entry.

guess what? The winning ads are now selected.

Bad news is I wasn't selected as a winning ad.

Good news is that out of 700 entries, I was in the finalist category of 35 ads only. That means the top 5%!!

But it's not the winning one and therefore I did not score 100% on this test. Better luck next time I guess!
