In our role, The Globe is committed to championing creativity and providing a platform for the Canadian advertising and marketing community to gather and connect. Among other initiatives, The Globe also hosts the annual Young Lions and Young Marketers competitions, which is the only competition in Canada that qualifies participants to compete globally in Cannes.
