Future Lions is a very exciting opportunity brought to you by AKQA and Google. It's a global student competition that could not only kickstart your career but blast it into space. 

We've outlined the core stuff you need to know about Future Lions, but you can find out more (including submission details) at futurelions.com.

The prize

Let's start with the most important thing. What do you get if you win? The five global winners will not only get passes to the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity 2014 (you may have heard of it, it's kind of a big deal), they will also be honoured there. Plus they'll receive a nifty little trophy designed by AKQA. 

The Brief

Connect an audience of your choosing to a product or service from a global brand in a way that wasn’t possible five years ago.

That's it. No limits on brands. No limits on creative executions. Just do something awesome. 

The deadline

The deadline for entries is Monday 21 April at 18:00 GMT. We thoroughly recommend you get involved and give it ago. It could make your career. Apply at futurelions.com.
