Please join The Globe and Mail as we congratulate our finalists in the 2015 Young Lions and Young Marketers qualifying competitions. These talented teams were chosen from over 260 team entries from across Canada and represent some of the country’s most dynamic young thinkers in their fields.

From these talented teams, we’ll announce our Bronze, Silver and Gold winners at the CDMC Conference on May 5. The Gold placed team in each category will represent Canada at the Young Lions or Young Marketers competitions at the Cannes Lions  International Festival of Creativity  this June.
