A new partnership between global creative consistency platform Young Glory and commercial creativity conference C2 Montréal has been officially announced.
The collaboration will see the two organizations join forces in identifying, guiding and rewarding the world's best up-and-coming creative thinkers from around the world.
Young Glory's monthly creative challenges will now be structured around business and societal issues that will be key themes at the C2 Montréal 2015 conference. After 8 months of these briefs (beginning September 1st, 2014), Young Glory's overall winners will then be flown to Montreal to be crowned at the $10 Million event (May 26-28, 2015), which attracts over 2,000 C-level executives from more than 40 countries and will feature Kevin Spacey as this year's keynote speaker.
"C2 Montréal is the perfect partner to Young Glory," said Young Glory co-founder Brendan Graham. "Our winners prove themselves over 8 months, across 8 different challenges set by 8 judges with differing criteria and opinions. A metal statue doesn't do that achievement justice. Being able to further your professional development at an internationally recognized conference does."
"We've been working with Young Glory for a couple of years, and have been impressed with the quality of the ideas these guys have brought to the table. Pushing our partnership further was the logical step forward, and we're delighted to see them become part of our program." said Martin Enault, VP of Partnership and Technology of C2 Montréal.
This partnership is the result of a steadily growing relationship between Young Glory and C2 Montréal. In 2013 Young Glory participants from Brisbane, Australia and San Francisco, U.S.A flew to Montreal to present their ideas to Sir Richard Branson. While last year, Young Glory co-founder Rafik Belmesk and judge Graham Douglas presented participant-sourced ideas for ways to increase bone marrow donor registrations.view more - Awards and Events
