Entries open today for the ad:tech Digital Young Guns Shootout, a competition to find Australia’s sharpest minds in digital marketing under the age of 30.
Contestants will be given the opportunity to create a digital advertising campaign pitch for V Energy Drink on “V Powering Social Encounters”. Entries will be uploaded to YouTube or SlideShare for evaluation by the expert panel of judges including Nicolas Chu, MD, Expedia and Cathrine Dyer, Marketing Manager, Frucor, with further judges to be announced soon.
The top ten entries will be publicly voted on to whittle it down to the final four. They will then pitch their campaign live on the ad:tech show floor to determine who is the ad:tech Digital Young Gun 2012.
