For all you budding Willy Lomans out there, OgilvyOne has launched a Cannes tie-in contest dubbed “Search for the World’s Greatest Salesperson”, which will send three finalists on an all-expenses paid trip to this year’s Cannes Lions fest and will award one winner a three-month fellowship with the agency. The catch? You have to be able to sell a common red brick. Those wishing to participate can upload their best pitch to the contest’s YouTube page between now and May 16. According to the announce, the contestants’ job is to “rearticulate the lessons of sales espoused by David Ogilvy with a 21st century approach.”
