Young Shark Creative Brief

Our annual competition for young advertising and design creatives.

For the winner, the glory of being named this year’s young shark, plus one of our famous sharks head trophies to prove it. For those not so lucky, there’ll be another brief next year (unless of course you’re over 26 next year, in which case remember the words of Brigitte Bardot - “It’s sad to grow old but nice to ripen”).
