Last week was packed with activities at the youth academies of the Pitcher Festival of Creativity. After a series of intensive learning programmes at the Young Professionals Academy, it was time for competition.
The jurors praised the work of the competitors this year as being of better quality than what they had seen in previous years. This could be attributed to the competitors being better prepared for the contest. The top winners in each category will represent their country at the Cannes Lions Global Competition scheduled to hold virtually in May ahead of the in-person festival in June.
