Our official delegation is chosen through nonanonymous portfolio analysis. The jury is composed by former Young Lions that are predominantly white males. Gossip and predictable outcomes surround the whole process.

This year, the creative delegation is again composed only by men. Mostly white.


Despite all protests and alternatives suggested by creatives, agencies, and activists, the Young Lions Brazil Program organization insists that the lack of diversity in the Brazilian delegation is just a reflection of our industry and there is nothing they can do.

We do not accept this excuse and firmly believe that the Cannes Lions is today the only institution capable of demanding a fairer and attractive selection process, truly challenging so we can make Young Lions in Brazil relevant again.
