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 2018 event is slated for 18-22 June.
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.
Cannes Lions remains the advertising and creative industries’ foremost annual gathering with a truly worldwide reach.
