Pitch deadline:

JongeHonden

WHO ARE WE?

JongeHonden (or YoungDogs) is a non-profit company: connecting fresh ideas from young creatives to great companies and organisations through exciting pitches.

OUR MISSION

We are here to create opportunities for young talent to deliver the best work and reach their full potential within the advertising industry.

HOW IT WORKS FOR YOUNGDOGS

BRIEFING NIGHT

We ask the client to give a presentation about the brand and the briefing and we ask a befriended agency to give a small inspiration session. At the end of the night we hand out the briefing to the YoungDogs.

WEBSITE

On our website we post the briefing so YoungDogs that couldn’t make it to the briefing can still participate.

Q&A


After one week, YoungDogs can send their first thoughts or questions to the board. This way we can guide them throughout the pitch.

DEADLINE

After two weeks the YoungDogs enter their work via their profile on our website before 14:00. In video, jpegs or a PDF.

JUDGING

We ask the client and two or three different Creative Directors to judge the work. The board guides the session but does not participate in the actual judging.

RESULT NIGHT

YoungDogs have to be present during the result night. 
The judges will announce the top 3. The winners (1st place) get to go to Cannes.

HOW IT WORKS FOR CLIENTS:

THE BRIEF

Working together with the YoungDogs board, we will create a briefing. This can be anything from a PR stunt, a social media activation, a sustainability question, B2B, CRM or film. We will then set up a briefing night where you can present the brief, give an introduction to the brand and give the YoungDogs the opportunity to ask questions.

THE PITCH

The timeline is usually two weeks. During these two weeks everyone under 30 can show off their most innovative and crazy ideas. We also have a special 24H pitch, in which the 24 best creatives in the country battle to solve a creative brief in 24 hours.

THE JUDGING

Together with renowned Creative Directors you will judge the submitted work. That same evening we will announce the winners and discuss the next steps.

COSTS

A regular pitch costs €8500. This money buys the winning team a trip to the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity (the dream of every young creative).

ABOUT US

We are a foundation that runs entirely on volunteers, gifts and donations, so the pitch money will be fully spend on the development of young creatives. We also organise Creative Classes, creative speed-dating, charity pitches and portfolio nights. All to help young talent kick-start their career. Like us on FacebookLinkedIn and Instagram for more up-to-date information and dog GIF's.

It’s the weird perspectives, crazy ideas and rebellious souls of young creative minds that will form the future of the creative industry. - Jacques Vereecken, founder
