Come With Us To Cannes Lions!

Update: We have selected a winner and they have accepted. Thank you to everyone who took part in this brief!

We are looking for the brightest and most charismatic Creative that isn’t afraid to go out of their comfort zone, think on their feet and engage with the sharpest minds in the industry. We want to make you the Talenthouse Creative Correspondent for the Cannes Lions Festival of Creativity 2022.

This yearly festival is the biggest stage for some of the world’s most unique ideas. Each year, Talenthouse attends to see what the top Creatives in the world are producing, hang with the best talent, and learn as much as we can about the future of creativity. The problem is, we only get to see it from our eyes and we want to get your take on it! We are launching this brief to find a unique creative voice in our community to capture the type of content during the festival that only a member of our community could.

We are looking for you to produce and submit a video that introduces yourself, your creative passion, your individuality and unique perspective and capacity to craft a great narrative. Additionally, you should add what you could bring to the table if you were to be invited to be the Talenthouse Creative Correspondent for the week.

Creativity moves the world forward and we want you to have the front seat and report back to us.


The Cannes Lions Festival of Creativity happens once a year, and is the pinnacle of creativity. It is where all of the hustle and bustle of the industry meets and is truly a space to let our creativity shine. This year’s event will be from the 20th to the 24th of June.
