CHANGE THE WORLD WITH TWO SIDES OF PAPER

A joint initiative from Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Cannes Chimera has been created to utilise the creativity and problem-solving abilities of the communications industries to do good on a global scale.

It starts with an idea

Each summer at Cannes Lions, a brief will be released relating to a problem the world is facing. Anyone with an idea can answer that brief by just writing it down on two sides of paper.

Up to 10 winners will receive a Cannes Chimera trophy, which will be awarded onstage at the following year's Cannes Lions. Prizes of up to $100,000 each will be awarded to these projects.

Inspiration from the world's most creative minds

The winners will be flown to a special workshop session to meet with the Cannes Chimera for two days. The Cannes Chimera is a group of exceptional creative talent, made up of previous Cannes Lions Grand Prix winners. They will work with the winners to bring their creative visions to life.

The chance to make it happen

After this process, each of the winners will be eligible to apply for an award of up to $1m to help make their idea a reality.
