Shahak Shapira and Duncan Munge from Miami Ad School Europe and a team from Berghs School of Communication in Sweden rounded out the student awards, with a Gold and Shortlist respectively.

The Round 7 brief was all about ensuring the upcoming  42nd Just for Laughs comedy festival sells out. Says Marc Fortin, senior partner and VP executive creative director at lg2 in Montreal:

"The spectrum of work that I had to judge was exceptionally wide. Interactive, viral, mobile...these new components are more important than ever in determining which idea has the most potential to lift a brand. I saw some really solid work. Some really bold work. And I chose what I thought had the potential to stand out. "

The Final Round of Young Glory is now underway, with Aussie expat and CCO of R/GA North America Nick Law in the judge's seat.
