How to Become Famous

If you’re not interested in fun, sun and fame – stop reading – if you are, apply and be part of one of the six German Young Lions teams participating at the Young Lions Competition .

You’ll sweat blood and tears to build your career and perhaps even end up celebrating as a winner. But there’s one slight catch – before you prove yourself internationally against more than 60 countries, you’ll have to prove yourself as part of a two-person team in front of a top-class preselection committee.
From all the applications, our jury will select the five best per discipline and invite them to the pre-competition  in Hamburg.
Real Cannes conditions await you here: one task, 24 hours time (film category 48 hours). True to the motto: whoever sleeps, loses!

Only the best team in each discipline may take part in the international Young Lions Competition. The Competition will take place in Cannes during the Festival from June 17 – June 21, 2024.

Weischer is sending the Young Lions Teams 2024 to the Côte d’Azur. We will take care of flight, accommodation, and registration.

Show us that the lion is in you and get your tickets to Cannes!

Apply here now until February 22!

Good to know: An unlimited number of teams from the same agency can participate. You can also apply in several categories this year. However, if you are invited to two preliminary rounds, you will have to choose one category and can only participate in one preliminary round, as you can only compete in one discipline in Cannes. You can find all additional information in the Conditions of Participation.
