Australian Young Lions representatives, Jill Harmon and Nathan Kwok, have won bronze in the ninth annual Young Lions Marketers Competition held this week in Cannes, France.

The CommBank duo competed against 17 other nations on the world stage, with each team getting just 30 hours to prepare their brief centred on men’s health charity, Movember Foundation.  Each team then pitched their ideas to a panel of industry experts, this year lead by Ruth Yearly, Partner and Director of Insights and Strategy at global communications consultancy Ketchum.

The Silver Lion was awarded to team India’s Raisa Chakravarty and Anupama Sharma of ITC, while the coveted Gold Lion was awarded to Portugal’s Ana Rita Almeida of Worten and Diogo Vasques of Caixa Economica Montepio Geral.

Kwok and Harmon previously competed in two local Young Lions competition rounds amongst approximately 200 total entries to be named the Australian Young Marketers heading to Cannes.
