Marketers Competition

A two day challenge for young marketers and brand managers to create a winning campaign to get the attention of creative industry leaders

28 - 30 November 2017

The Young Marketers Competition is a hunt for Europe's best client marketers. Over an intense 24-hour period, teams of two will work to come up with a concise, direct and effective brief - the kind that will clearly act as a creative springboard for an agency.

It's the ultimate test of your teamwork and ability to think under pressure. It's also a great opportunity to raise your profile among industry leaders and prove yourself among Europe's best marketers.

How the competition works

The Challenge

After travelling to our London venue, you will be briefed in the morning before being given one day (no more than 30 hours) to write a brilliant creative brief. You can work on your brief in the venue or wherever you find creatively stimulating, but you must hand your work in by 18:00. The next day, you and your fellow competitors will have just five minutes to present your brief to a panel of leading advertising, marketing and communications industry figures.

The Prize

The winning team will be presented with their award at that night's eurobest awards show. Each team member also gets a free pass to eurobest 2018.

Interested for next year?

All teams must be made up of two young marketers aged 30 years or under, both working in client companies in Europe. Competitors are selected for the competition by the Festival Representative for their country in the months leading up to the event.
