Win a Place on Team YouTube at Cannes Young Lions

At midnight on May 15 the clock starts ticking on a 48-hour YouTube contest that will catapult two users onto the Cannes Croisette at the very moment that the world’s advertising community is in town for their annual get together at the Cannes Lions advertising festival.


The two victors of this online iteration of the Young Lions Film Competition will form a YouTube team that will take on 37 others from around the world in a week-long challenge to shoot and edit a 60-second commercial on behalf of a charity. Previous entries (and winners) can be seen on the UK homepage today:







In terms of the YouTube competition, would-be winners (who must be 28 or younger) will be able to see the brief from midnight on May 15. They will then have to upload their finished ads to the Cannes Lions channel within 48 hours, and then embark on a quest for clicks and kudos before the curtain comes down on the competition on June 1.



As well as views, ratings and the profile of the ad, a panel of industry professionals will review the entries before announcing the winners. So, stay tuned to the Cannes Lions channel for more information, review the efforts of those who have gone before you and make sure your creative juices are set to flow forth once the starting pistol is fired on May 15.



Have fun,

Dear Jamie,
Sorry for using the blog but I am unable to locate any other means to contact someone in 'content' at You Tube. I write for MSN the website and needing to contact You Tube by email regarding the guidelines. I'm writing an article about offensive posts placed in commentary boxes and the guidelines that are set up to help prevent such abuses. I have already been to the pages regarding Community Guidelines but there are no direct emails to contact anyone. Grateful for any help. Thank You

Dear Sir or Madam, (Sorry to conatct you this way, I couldnt find a email)

I am the director of the Gruba Snuba Hotel episodes. Me and my cast have just finished recording a whole series (Of 16 Episodes) this summer. I've came round today to upload them, but they're all longer than 10 minutes, (They're 15 mins to be precise) I wonder if it would be possible for you to spare us a extra 5 minutes. We have applied for your partnership, but with just one show on you tube and the rest waiting to be uploaded it doesn't look promising. Please reply as soon as possible,

Jordan Tweddle

Could you reply to me at grubasnuba@live.co.uk
