The Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity is one of the most important trade events for the advertising, creative and related fields. The five-day festival, which hosts the coveted Lions awards, is held yearly at the Palais de Festivals in Cannes, France. The 2019 event is slated for 17-21 June. Despite rumours to the contrary, the event has not been shortened.
Some 16,000 delegates from around the world attend the festival to view shortlisted work and attend seminars, workshops and master classes. The week’s activities include four award ceremonies – culminating with the Film, Titanium and Integrated Lions awards – as well as an opening and closing gala.
Over 20,000 items are submitted for the awards, which now include special sections for the hyper-regulated medical sector, which had obviously not been playing on the same field as the others.
Despite all the changes of the previous years, Cannes Lions remains the advertising and creative industries’ foremost annual gathering with a truly worldwide reach.
