Those not sipping Champagne, mulling over the world's finest crop of advertising campaigns and basking in 79°F heat in France, will instead be able to sample the delights of Hoxton Square at today's 'Skinny Cubs' competition.

The competition will include a 48-hour brief for young creatives. Details will be announced at tonight’s party at Zigfrid Von Underbelly in Hoxton Square.

Agency Republic’s executive creative director Alistair Campbell, Albion’s executive creative director Nick Darken and Profero’s new executive creative director Ben Clapp, will be among the mentors on hand to offer advice.

London agencies, including LBi, Dare, Fortune Cookie, Albion, Kitcatt Nohr Digitas, Work Club, Poke and Skive/Soup, as well as Plan B Studio, Hyper Island will be joining CANNT week, hosted at venues across East London.
