The Digital Place Based Advertising Association (DPAA) and Cannes Lions announced today a Video Everywhere Summit joint promotion, in conjunction with sponsoring company AMI Entertainment, that will send an ad agency media professional to the June 2017 Cannes Lions Young Media Academy held at the Cannes Lions in France.
The Young Media Academy is open to media professionals 30 years of age or under. Delegates to the DPAA's Video Everywhere Summit on October 27 who meet this criteria will be invited to enter the drawing at the AMI exhibit booth. The winner will be announced at the Summit cocktail party immediately following the day's sessions. In addition to the seat in the Young Media Academy, the winner's accommodations and travel will be included.
Barry Frey, DPAA President & CEO, said, "We are thrilled to be teaming up with Cannes Lions and AMI Entertainment to send a young media professional to the prestigious and incredibly valuable Young Media Academy. For the winner, this is likely to be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity; one that can really help advance a career."
