Meet our young lions

Igor Maršićević and Ivana Knežević from DRIVE agency will take part in the Cannes world competition!

At the Young Lions Serbia competition in 2019, the jury rated the work of our colleagues from Agency Drive as the best in two out of three categories.

Awarded categories and works are:

All teams had the same task, which is to respond to the problem of lack of participation of children in decision-making, but also in expressing personal opinions. This is the fundamental reason why the position of children prescribed by the UN Convention on their rights has not been fully achieved in practice.

Ikonia and Vladimir presented the winning solution in the PRINT category.

"I am very proud of the success of all of our team members because we truly showcased our creative potential and motivation for nurturing ideas that solve the important social problems. I am also very pleased that Ikonija and I were able to receive the first prize in the print category, which is not our primary area of work, " said Vladimir (Copywriter, Drive).

Ikonija (Designer, Drive) added: “I’m happy and grateful to be rewarded at the very beginning of my professional career especially in the print category. I’m also very proud to represent Drive not only as digital but also a creative agency at its best, with Vladimir, Ivana and Igor.”

The main prize, which implies a trip to Kan and participation in the Global Young Lions competition, was won by Ivana Knežević and Igor Maršićević. Their work achieved victory in the DIGITAL category.

“I am very happy for this success and it is a great honor for us to have an opportunity to represent our "young" creative scene at the Cannes Festival. This is a really great success and a strong motivation for further work. Also, I would like to congratulate my colleagues who won the award for print, as well as to all other colleagues who participated in the Young Lions Serbia 2019 competition in front of our group, “Ivana emphasized (Head of social media, Drive).

“Winning the first place in a tough competition for me is a great success and a huge encouragement to work on the same level in projects in the future. It is a great honor for me to have the opportunity to represent the creativity of our country and Drive at the prestigious Cannes Festival,” Igor concluded (Senior designer, Drive).

This is not just a great success and a huge recognition for the young creators at Drive agency, but also a kind of announcement of future successful projects as well, for the future is ahead of them.
