Team DDB took pole position at the Mediacorp Young Lions Competition held last night, when its creative teams, Christine Lim and Joanna Ortega took first place in the Cyber category and Eugene Yow and Tytan Chang took second place in the Film category.
Christine and Joanna will go on to represent Singapore at the Cannes Young Lions Competition in June, and Eugene and Tytan will do the same at Spikes Asia 2016.
Congratulating the teams, Joji Jacob, Group Executive Creative Director, DDB Group Singapore said, “There’s nothing more gratifying than having our youngest teams win big. Christine, Joanna, Eugene and Tytan competed against almost 20 other teams to come out tops. And now they get to match their talents against the world’s best and brightest in Cannes. All of us at DDB Group Singapore are very proud of them."
The winning teams earn for themselves a fully-sponsored trip which includes four-day passes to the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity, all-expense paid return air tickets and accommodation in Cannes, France. They will also represent Singapore at the Young Spikes Competition at Spikes Asia 2016 in September.

The competition is open to all young creatives below 30 years of age working in creative agencies based in Singapore. The final creative work was judged by a panel of leading Creative Directors.
