Two of three Young Lions juries announced

The judges for Canada’s Globe and Mail’s Young Lions competition print, film and cyber teams have been selected. The media jury will be announced next week, and the registration deadline has also been extended.

The panel of jurors selecting the teams from this year’s Globe and Mail Young Lions competition entrants to represent Canada in Cannes in the print, cyber and film categories this year has been announced. Presided over by jury president and Strategy magazine executive editor Mary Maddever, they include:

Heather Chambers, CD, Leo Burnett
Patrick Doyle, CD, Trigger
Alan Gee, partner/CCO, GJP
Lance Martin, executive CD, Taxi 2
Eva Van Den Bulcke, co-CD/partner, Sid Lee
Mikey Richardson, CD, Amoebacorp

Cyber and Film
Brett Channer, executive CD, Saatchi
Karen Howe, senior VP/CD, Due North Communications
Dre Labre, CD, Tribal DDB
Gae Wakabayashi, VP/executive CD, Fjord
Dave Watson, CD design, Taxi 2
Heather Hnatiuk, associate CD, Ogilvy

The media jury is set to be unveiled next week.

The registration deadline has also been extended to March 19, due to a large volume of requests, so those still interested in putting their hat into this year’s comp have a little more time to enter.

‘We are delighted by the unprecedented enthusiasm demonstrated for our competition this year,’ said Andrew Saunders, VP advertising sales, the Globe and Mail, in a release. ‘It speaks to a healthy, vibrant advertising and marketing industry in Canada.’

Advertising creatives, account planners, media planners and buyers and students 28 years old or younger are eligible to enter. Registered entrants will receive their creative briefs on March 27 at 9 a.m. and will have exactly 24 hours to submit entries for the print, cyber and media categories, and 48 hours for the film category.
