Six teams from Asia make the cut at shortlist round of the 2015 Young Lions Health Award

Lions Health-LOGO black.jpgLions Health, the Festival and Awards for creative excellence in healthcare, has announced the shortlist for the Young Lions Health Award, the new competition launched this year calling on young creatives to devise a marketing campaign on integrated health solutions for developing countries.

Six teams from Asia have made the cut including; Ning Ren and Jie Ruo, ONES IDEA, Shaoxing; Barny Rivera, FCB Manila, Makati City and Maria Melissa Vibar, Draftfcb Digital Inc., Makati City; Soleil Beatriz Badenhop and Anna Monina Mae Antig, Draftfcb Digital Inc., Makati City; Nasich Taufik Ulinuha and Ardanaga Sasmita, PT. Thinksmart Ide Brajendra, Jakarta; Adeline Siow Siew Fen and Kenneth Foo Yong Hao, J. Walter Thompson Pte Ltd, Singapore and Juneston Mathana, Leo Burnett Solutions Inc., Sri Lanka.
A jury of nine respected industry leaders, which included UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador and 007 actor, Sir Roger Moore, arrived at a shortlist of 18. Shortlisted entrants come from 14 countries: Argentina, Australia, Brazil, China, the Dominican Republic, Guatemala, India, Indonesia, The Philippines, Russia, Singapore, Sri Lanka, UK, and USA.

Louise Benson, festival director, Lions Health, said that it was "fantastic to see such a spectrum of countries on the shortlist because it proves that the issue the Young Lions Health Award tackles is a worldwide problem, the enormity of which is understood across the globe."

Says June Laffey, jury member and executive creative director, McCann Health Sydney: "As we live longer, innovation and creative thinking in health needs to get smarter. The Young Lions Health entries proved to be looking forward, we are in very safe, creative hands and minds."

Says Dr. Mickey Chopra, jury member and head of UNICEF's global health programmes: "This competition comes at precisely the right time, since in under three months the United Nations will be setting new global goals for health. As we have seen with the Millennium Development Goals, these new goals will need targeted communication in order to have a chance at success, so the engagement and outstanding talent shown by these young people is a very hopeful sign."

Says Keith Weed, Unilever's chief marketing and communications officer and one of this year's judges for the competition: "I have been personally inspired by the final shortlist of entries and extend my congratulations to the winner of this year's Young Lions Health Award. Innovative communications not only play a critical role in building awareness of global health and hygiene challenges, but they are instrumental in driving transformational change for those plagued by inequities of current health systems. By leveraging the combined skills of the public and private sectors, we can help uplift people out of poverty and create a sustainable future for children and their families."

The winners of the Young Lions Health Award will be announced and presented at the official Lions Health Awards Ceremony in Cannes on Friday 19 June. The winning team will have the opportunity to join the global healthcare industry, and will see their entry in the spotlight at Lions Health.
