TBWA Singapore team come out tops in the Cannes Young Lions print competition

TBWA Young Lions.jpgIn a big coup for Singapore Nuno Teixeira and James Holman from TBWA Singapore have beaten 41 other international teams to win the Cannes Young Lions print competition. The brief was to create a print ad to a brief given by Control Arms, a global civil society alliance campaigning for a "bulletproof" Arms Trade Treaty that will protect lives and livelihoods.

The coalition has a great variety of agencies and NGOs from around the world (of which Oxfam is a founding member). Control Arms members have campaigned for this treaty for more than a
decade.

The winning gold team will be presented with their gold medal on Wednesday at the Press, Design, Radio and Cyber Lions Awards Ceremony. They will also receive a framed, limited edition print from Getty Images and a complimentary registration to the 2013 Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity.
