"Creativity is the use of imagination or original ideas to create something new."

Every year the best creatives in the world are awarded in the Cannes Lions Festival of Creativity. Heta Kärki (@HetaMaria) and Emmi Uusitalo have won the Young Lions Finland Marketers organised by Kärki Media and were sent to France to compete against the others young creatives from around the globe.
