Cannes Lions has upped the registration age for Young Lions from 28 to 30 years of age. However, the age limit for competing in all the Young Lions competitions remains at 28 years or younger.

Creative and marketing professionals born after 27 June 1978 can benefit from a 4-day or full-week registration package at a reduced price allowing them access to the festival activities, which include over 50 seminars and 20 workshops, as well as exclusive access to the Young Lions Zone, a programme of 10 master classes by creatives like Alex Bogusky, Tham Khai Meng, and Bob Greenberg, as well as marketing experts Jonathan Mildenhall (Coca-Coca) and Michael Mendenhall (HP) and an invitation to the Young Lions party on Tuesday 23 June.

Philip Thomas, Festival CEO said, "This is a financially difficult year for everybody, therefore for this year only we've increased the age limit for the Young Lions registration to create an opportunity for young creatives and young marketers to take advantage and benefit from the outstanding Festival programme that we have in place. Cannes Lions is quite simply the finest training opportunity of the year."
