Calling PR Young Lions in Hong Kong

Young PR professionals in Hong Kong who have what it takes to create a stellar charity campaign could find themselves competing in Cannes.

The Council of Public Relations Firms of Hong Kong (CPRFHK) has launched its first local competition to enter a winning team into the Young Lions competition at the Cannes Festival of Creativity in June.

Entrants will be asked to devise a campaign in answer to a brief set by a charity partner, which seeks to turn surplus food from different sectors of Hong Kong's food industry into nutritious hot meals for underprivileged communities. More information on the brief and competition is available at the CPRFHK website

Through this exciting collaboration we are championing the next generation of Hong Kong public relations professionals and giving them the opportunity to showcase their skills on a global platform."
