Brisbane duo score Gold in Round 1 of Young Glory.

25th November, 2015

Clemenger BBDO Brisbane duo Chris Connolly and Rosie Double have been award Gold in the first round of Young Glory - the 8 month long award competition that sees participants respond to 8 briefs from 8 different judges around the world.

Their idea 'Project Rio' was submitted in response to a brief by Y&R Asia CCO Marcus Rebeschini that challenged entrants to stop their tap from running water when brushing their teeth.

"Golds are rare in Young Glory" said Young Glory's Australian co-founder Brendan Graham. "This one is even more notable because it was the only idea Marcus gave an award to, despite having over 300 entries to choose from. He was by far the toughest judge we've ever had."

Young Glory runs from September to May every year. Submissions are currently open for Round 3, which is being judged by UM Australia CEO Ross Raeburn.
