We believe creativity is the driving force for business, for change and for good.
That’s why we are campaigners for creativity: we inspire creative bravery that changes the course of communications.
Our awards set a global benchmark for what good creative looks like, and our annual Festival connects those with a similar vision.
In 2015, Cannes Lions will recognise and award the year’s most exciting creative ideas across 16 categories, covering everything from traditional print and film communications to technology and product design. There are also two categories in the Lions Innovation Awards and two in Lions Health.
This year, Cannes Lions will unveil exciting new ‘pop-up’ networking venues, exclusively for official delegates, both inside and outside the Palais des Festivals.
Cannes Lions is the year’s most time-efficient and inspiring business trip for tens of thousands of people.
Agency creatives, client marketers, strategists, analysts, publishers, technology providers and financiers flock to the streets and sands of Cannes, sharing ideas and planning ahead. During the Festival, important new connections and major business decisions are being made every hour of every day, right across the city.
Creative business people from organisations of all sizes connect and collaborate at Cannes Lions – clients meet agencies, agencies win business, start-ups win funding and products find buyers. Cannes Lions also plays host to annual meetings of global creative councils and worldwide marketing teams’ annual strategy sessions.
