Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity

What is Cannes Lions

Since its first outing in 1954, the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity has been bringing the creative communications industry together every year at its one-of-a-kind event in Cannes to learn, network and celebrate. 
The Festival in June marks the culmination and start of the creative year, a time for the Cannes Lions global community – made up of the world’s most inventive, talented and creative people – to set the agenda for the year ahead.


The Lion is recognised globally as the touchstone for creative excellence in communications. It is the award to win. From Digital Craft to Promo & Activation, the Lions honour the best creative work of the year across the whole spectrum of branded communications.

If winning a Lion is the ultimate career goal, then an invitation to join the Cannes Lions jury – made up of previous Lion-winners - is career-defining. The integrity of the Awards depends on the quality of the juries – which is why we hand-pick only the best people, with proven creative credentials and influence. The rigour of the judging process is second-to-none in our industry.
