Meet Australia’s Cannes Young Lions

Five Sydney-based entrants have travelled to the Cannes Festival of Creativity to compete in the Young Lions competition.

Across three sectors, the five representatives are UM’s David Gray for media; M&C Saatchi’s Peter Renigeris and Ogilvy’s Mietta McFarlane for print; and RTA’s Sirisha Pulapaka and Audi’s Helen Luong for marketing.

Mumbrella managing editor Robin Hicks discusses with them:

  • How they handled the competitive brief to represent Australia?
  • What they hope to get out of Cannes?
  • Australia’s chances
  • Are students being properly prepared for the industry?
