2022 U.S. Young Lions Competitions

NCM, America’s largest cinema advertising network, is honored to serve as the official U.S. Representative to the Lions International Festival of Creativity. In 2022 we will coordinate six Young Lions competitions: Digital; Film; Marketer; Media; Print & PR.

These competitions will be open to two professionals aged 31 years or younger: born after June 20, 1991. The 2022 Timeline for these competitions is listed below.

Please note that due to ongoing pandemic issues, the six winning teams from the U.S. – “Team USA” will compete in a virtual global competition during the May 16-June 7th timeframe. Our “Team USA” will have the opportunity to attend the Cannes Lions Festival (June 20-24 2022) and take part in a curated Young Lions program, courtesy of our team sponsors. It will be a hugely rewarding experience that could change a career forever! Find a partner and register now! There are no entry or participation fees.
