Lions Health has announced that Unicef Goodwill Ambassador Sir Roger Moore – once known as James Bond 007 – will be joining the jury of industry leaders judging the Young Lions Health Award, a new competition for young creatives and marketers that aims to improve challenges facing health systems in low-income countries.

Launched together with Unicef and Unilever, the Young Lions Health Award calls on the young creative industry to develop a compelling campaign that helps address this challenge. Unicef will utilise the winning campaign as the basis for engaging the general public to advocate and mobilise support for better, child-focused health systems.

Sir Roger is a steadfast advocate for children, visiting Unicef-supported programmes around the world. He was knighted by the Queen for his tireless charity work at Buck House in 2003.

“I am thrilled to join the jury for the Young Lions Health competition which is a unique opportunity to help change the lives of the most vulnerable children,” he said.

Meanwhile, the deadline for entry submission has been extended by a week until Thursday 2 April.

Lions Health runs 19-20 June, is a festival and awards ceremony for creative excellence in the global healthcare industry. The winners of the award will be presented at Lions Health giving them the opportunity to join the global healthcare community, as well as see their entry in the spotlight when they are honoured at the official awards ceremony.
