And, out of our Portugal office, more fantastic news: Daniela Duarte and Carolina Espírito Santo won first place in the prestigious Young Lions Competition. This award gives the next generation of industry professionals the chance to showcase their skills and create campaigns. The competition consisted of five pairs that worked for 48 hours in a boot camp to create a mock campaign for Start Up Lisboa.

As winners, Daniela and Carolina will attend the Cannes Lions Festival in June and represent Portugal. Miguel Fontes, the director of Start Up Lisboa, stated “They were by far the best pair, the ones that have fully captured the briefing with the most strategic and creative approach.” The jury was composed of representatives from Apecom (local PR association), Llorente y Cuenca, Lift, LPM, Global Press, Quimbé (actor), Porter Novelli and two representatives from Start Up Lisboa (the client). The entire event was covered on national television, from the 48h boot camp to the prizes ceremony. Congratulations Daniela and Carolina!
