Dubai Lynx started delegate registration for 2013 edition

Creativity, Festivals & Awards

Dubai Lynx, the leading creative awards and Festival for the Middle East and Africa region, has opened for delegate registrations. The festival, taking place on March 10-13, at Madinat Jumeirah Dubai, will offer an exceptional three days of content with a packed line-up of seminars given by both global and regional industry leaders.

Unmissable networking opportunities will allow delegates to mingle and socialize with fellow industry people while exhibitions and screenings showcasing the best of the region’s work will leave attendees both inspired and motivated. Running alongside this, the Young Lynx Competition will provide the up and coming generation of creative talent the opportunity to showcase their skills. Teams of three will compete to devise an eye-catching integrated campaign which will then be judged by a dedicated jury to decide which team will take home gold.

Elsewhere at the Festival, young talent will be nurtured at the Lynx Academy which offers students a dedicated program that is tailored to their needs. Leo Burnett will once again join forces with the organizers to form the academy and further to this have committed to work in partnership on the academy for the next three years, therefore cementing the educational and learning values of this unique program.

 Our partnership with the Dubai International Festival of Creativity and the Dubai Lynx Academy reflects our commitment to helping a new generation acquaint itself with what communication is all about. We believe that young graduates have a major role to play in the future of our business. The Dubai Lynx Academy provides a unique and insightful learning opportunity for students and will help them develop their careers. While the Academy imparts knowledge and training to students, it also helps us identify potential talents that can contribute to the field of communications in the future. Our continued partnership for another three years is a demonstration of our deep commitment to Dubai Lynx’s efforts in this arena.
