Fairfax Media is proud to announce the winners of their Cannes Young Lions competitions for 2008. Will Douglas and Chloe Hardy, both from OMD, took out first place in the Young Lions Media category with their winning multi-platform media strategy. Carl Savage and Brett Colliver, from DDB, were the winners in the Young Lions Print Creative category.

The two winning teams, courtesy of Fairfax Media, will be flown to
France next month and receive full registration to the Cannes Lions
2008 Advertising Festival, the largest and most prestigious advertising
festival in the world. There they will compete on the world stage in
the Young Lions Media and Print competitions respectively.

Plus the prize provides the winners with a once in a lifetime
opportunity to hear presentations from the best advertising minds with
the Young Lions Creative team attending the creative workshops, and the
Young Lions Media winners attending the media conference sessions.

The Young Lions competition called for entries from agency media
planners and agency media buyers (for the Young Lions Media category)
and copywriters and art directors (for the Young Lions Print category).
