Calling all social media gurus! The Young Shark Awards need to hear your ideas

Brought to you by The Shark Awards

The best idea will win a 4-day VIP trip to The Shark Awards 2019 that includes all transport and accommodation.

Ireland may only be a small island, but we've never exactly been short of creative people. That doesn't look set to change with the next generation either, so it's only right they're given a chance to put their ideas out for the world.

That's exactly what the Young Shark Awards are all about. Taking place in Kinsale from 18—21 September, entries for the awards themselves will be closing on Saturday, 6 July.

Tickets to the awards can still be purchased online, but they've just announced a competition where they will be giving one lucky young person the full VIP treatment. If you can think of a good enough idea to totally blow the judges away, you could win:

  • Four-day Festival Delegate pass (worth €275)
  • Travel to and from festival
  • Accommodation
  • Two VIP dinners with local & international jurors

All you have to do to be in with a chance of winning is come up with your best idea. Whether it's something that's been fluttering at the back of your mind or something you'll only think of when you set your mind to it, flesh it out and send it over to

The kind of idea they're looking for is something that can promote the awards on social media. Rather than something run-of-the-mill that anyone could think of, they want to find someone with the ability of thinking outside the box.

You have to be 26 or under to enter, and you'll find everything you need to know about the competition here. Time to put your thinking hats on (if that is really something people do).
