The teams in the categories Film, Print and Digital have qualified via ADC Young Creatives Awards 2023 to participate in the young talent competition. The Media Team was determined in a careful selection process by Weischer.Cinema. Also participating in Cannes, but not taking part in the Young Lions Competition, is the team that won the ADC Young Creatives Award in the Direct category. This is made possible by the support of the category sponsors of the ADC Young Creatives Awards as well as the respective agencies Jung von Matt Limmat, Wunderman Thompson and TBWA.

"We are very excited about the partnership with ADC Switzerland and the talented participants* who make up the Swiss Young Lions team," says Christof Kaufmann, CEO of Weischer.Cinema. According to Kaufmann, the collaboration also lends a new dimension to the entire
Creative industry boost: "I'm not worried about the local creative industry when I see our talented young people," the Weischer.Cinema CEO continues.

Philipp Skrabal, ADC Vice President & Chief Creative Officer Farner on the cooperation: "ADC invests a lot in Switzerland as a creative location. We are very pleased that our successful youngsters will be able to compete internationally again in Cannes in 2023."

After two digital years, the Young Lions up-and-coming talent competition is back in Cannes. During the Cannes Lions Festival from June 19 to June 23, the young Swiss talents will compete against the world's best young creatives in the categories Film, Print, Digital and Media.
