the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity. It is attended by
international students studying advertising, marketing or related

It is anchored by some of the leading lights in international
advertising. Participants are able to network with their peers from
other countries. At the end of the programme, they
receive a certificate during a graduation ceremony that is of
international value. Since 2010, Draft FCB has also created internship

of the Roger Hatchuel Academy should be students who have the
intention of working in the marketing communication industry in future.
Since 2009, Chini Productions have been organizing sessions where
students are taught by senior practitioners from the Nigerian industry.
The idea is to ensure that everybody benefits even if they don’t get
selected to participate in France. After the short training programme, a
test is administered by the Advertising Practitioners’ Council of
Nigeria, APCON, based on the programme content and their general
knowledge of marketing communications, to select the best student, who
will have the opportunity of representing Nigeria at the main Roger
Hatchuel Academy in Cannes, France. All participants will receive a
certificate of participation. Participants should be students of at
least 18 years.
