ADCI, founded in 1985, serves as a cultural association uniting top professionals in the field of advertising communication, recognising outstanding Italian creativity through its ADCI Awards. Under this collaboration, Bridgeman Images and ADCI will embark on various joint initiatives, including creative competitions and awards. The first endeavour is the “Giovani Leoni” competition, in collaboration with the sponsors of the individual categories. The aim of the award is to promote the talent of young creatives working in communication agencies and as part of the Cannes International Festival of Creativity. The collaboration on “Giovani Leoni” is part of a broader partnership with Bridgeman Images, which provides exclusive services and conditions for ADCI members.

The 2024 edition of “Giovani Leoni” is scheduled to unfold through a series of activities culminating in an awards ceremony to celebrate the winners at Naba in Milan on 18 April 2024. Over the weekend of 6-7 April, participants will source visuals from Bridgeman Images for their creative proposal, as well as copyright free or proprietary materials. The winners of each category will participate in the “Young Lions Competition” contest which will be held during the 5 days of the Cannes Lions Festival of Creativity (17-21 June 2024).
