The Dubai Lynx 7-Day Brief powered by YouTube, is a new regional contest in search of two talented individuals who wish to showcase their creative flair by producing a 30 second commercial for a non-for-profit organisation.
Participants will have just seven days, until midday (UAE) on Wednesday 13 February, to make a 30 second ad aimed at raising awareness for the charity and upload the film to youtube.com/user/officialdubailynx for the public to view and share further building recognition for the non-for-profit organisation.
From all the entries submitted, two winning ads will be selected by a panel of experts made-up of Dubai Lynx Grand Prix winners from the past three years.
The two winners will receive an all-expenses paid trip to attend the Dubai Lynx International Festival of Creativity during which they will have the unique opportunity of partaking in a 30-minutes one-on-one tutorial with a member of the Dubai Lynx jury.
