The three simple steps for wining a bronze at Lynx:


1- copy an idea that already exists and had been copied before.

2- download the photo from the stock library.

3- stick a logo of a client (even if it is not your client).

submit and win.


No one is saying that you cant use a close up shot of an elephant; just use it in an original way to express a different idea like the following example.
