The Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity announced the 27 Jury Presidents that will lead and guide specialist juries at the 66th edition of the Festival.
The Jury Presidents span the Cannes Lions Awards architecture, introduced last year, which includes nine Awards Tracks. These Tracks provide an organising structure to enable entrants to navigate the Lions and also reflect the diversity and specialism of the work from the creative communications industry. The juries will have the responsibility of curating a body of work that will represent 2018 and set the tone for the creative year ahead.
Philip Thomas, Chairman of Cannes Lions, said, “To win a Cannes Lion demonstrates creative excellence. It’s inspiring work that stands out for its innovation, impact and effectiveness. In awarding a Lion, the juries are recognising the best creative output from the year gone by but also signaling the future of creativity. Our Jury Presidents are pivotal in this process, themselves having demonstrated their creative credentials in guiding teams, organisations and brands to set exemplary standards. We’re extremely proud to have their talent and experience to lead this year’s juries in setting the benchmark for creativity going forward.”
The 2019 jury line-up includes two new Lions; the Entertainment Lion for Sport and the Creative Strategy Lions while the Product Design Lion has been retired. This shift in disciplines of Lions represents the changing industry landscape and how the future of creativity is evolving.
