Shortlists announced for Dubai Lynx and YouTube 7-day competition

 

The annual award show, Dubai Lynx, announced the 12 entries that have shortlisted for its film competition – the Dubai Lynx and YouTube 7-Day Brief.

The brief, set by the UNHCR (United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees), asked participants to make a 30-60 second film commercial in seven days, in English or Arabic and upload the film to YouTube for public viewing. The aim of the commercial is to raise awareness for UNHCR and to encourage those living in the GCC and Mena countries to make a monthly donation of $100 to help Syrian refugee families receive the life-saving support they desperately need.

The jury, made up of seven industry leaders from the region, led by Bechara Mouzannar, chief creative officer at Leo Burnett MENA, have shortlisted this year’s 49 entries. These include:
