Fairfax Cannes Comp - get the brief

Fairfax's brief for their Cannes Young Creative competition can be uploaded at www.stuff.co.nz/youngcreative

The prize is a trip to the Cannes Lions in June 2006 for the team of two.

The judges for the Fairfax Young Creative Competition are Michael Prentice, Strategic Director at Meares Taine, who is also a member of the Media Jury for Cannes Lions, and Matty Burton, Creative Group Head at Saatchi & Saatchi, who is on the Direct Jury.

Judging will take place on 26th April 2006 and a function to announce the winning pair will be held on 27th April 2006.

- You must be born after 24 June 1977.
- You must be currently employed by a New Zealand agency.
- You must hold a current New Zealand passport (valid for over six months from June 2006).


I think what they meant to say was " you must have been born after 24 June 1977"

Yes - all this young creative stuff - has anyone talked to Human Rights about this?

Why must it involve a current NZ passport? This will eliminate a number of student creatives now on placement at various NZ agencies. Someone should ask fairfax their reasons for this.

It's not a Fairfax condition. It's a Cannes condition. Ask the Cannes organisers if you're moaning.

I can't believe you have to be employed. Not an easy task, I've been made redundant, freelanced and now back on placement. So does that mean I can't enter? What a bunch of it.

If you've been made redundant, freelanced and now back on placement you may be pushing shit up hill anyway.

Does a placement count as employment or do we just have to lie about it?

7:13 - This isn't just a free trip to Cannes, it's a free trip to Cannes to represent NZ in the worldwide young creatives competition.

If you don't have an NZ passport then maybe try visiting www.fairfax.co.pitcairn or wherever you're from and they might just let you enter.

There is no such thing as "an NZ passport". It's "a NZ passport".

Well spotted.

The 'an', as in 'an history',or before any 'h' is most quite often abused.

Anyone who needs to enter can have a letter of employment from me.

May the very best ideas win. Who cares about anything else.

Beesening & I were the UK entry back in '95-thanks to John Hegarty's pick. And we got a bronze. And my life changed because of that. Edward De Bono said something like 'better to have so many ideas for them all to be wrong, than to have too few for fear being not right.'

Right on.

I have an English passport and New Zealand residency. My geneaology is Irish. My wife is a new Zealander born in Melbourne and daughter was born on the North Shore.

Just send in your ideas.
