Five teams of two have won News Corp’s 2014 Cannes Young Lions competition which will see them  represent Australia at the 2014 International Cannes Lions Festival.

The winning teams are:

Digital: Laura Petruccelli and Rohan Cooke from Grey (VIC)

Print: Millicent Malcolm and Zenon Predecki from JWT Melbourne (VIC)

Film: Carl Robertson and Tristan Viney from GPYR (QLD)

Media: Jason Maggs and John Dawson from Mindshare (NSW)

Marketing: Laura Jenkins (NSW) from Foxtel and Pippa Kulmar from Retail Oasis (NSW)

“The level of talent that is unearthed over the course of our Cannes Young Lions competition continues to impress us,” Fiorella Di Santo, News Corp Australia group director of sales, said.

“The sheer determination, immense creativity and inspired innovation demonstrated by our finalists this year was remarkable. Congratulations to all the winners, but also to everyone who entered the competition – it was a very tough pool.

“The competition was exceptionally close, which is why I’m also delighted that through our expanded program, we are able to continue to foster young creative talent by giving two teams the opportunity to represent Australia at the Spikes Asia Festival.”

News Corp once again partnered with the Murdoch Children’s Research Institute (MCRI).

The finalists were announced earlier in May where the teams had to response to a 24 hour brief (48 hours for film).

The brief aimed to support MCRI’s campaign encouraging people to take a break from social media for 48 hours and instead refocus on things that are more important
