Cannes Lions 2020 Cancelled.
The Festival and Awards will not take place in 2020.
Cannes Lions announces today that the annual Festival of Creativity will not take place in October as previously planned. The next edition of the Festival will run June 21-25, 2021.

The Cannes City Hall, the Palais des Festivals and all local stakeholders are working tirelessly with every organizer to keep a maximum number of events in Cannes in 2020 to relaunch, as soon as the public health situation allows it, the economic activity and the employment. »
David Lisnard, Mayor of Cannes


A large-scale professional meeting.

Being in the spotlight is part of the Cannes DNA, no matter whether these are from the cinema or publicity. And the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity no longer has to prove its interest and renown as every year, since 1954, it has brought together thousands of short films, adverts, posters and other products from the creative communications industries. It therefore ranks among the most prestigious events in the advertising and communications sector and brings together publicists from the world over, celebrating the thousands of global creations and showcasing the best works from over 100 countries around the world.

A preferential place of exchange
With over 15,000 participants from more than 100 countries, the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity is a place for exchanges between entrepreneurs, directors, creators and the professionals and opinion leaders from the various advertising industries. On the programme: conferences, workshops, networking, tutorials and awards for those in the communications, marketing, design, technology, media and entertainment sectors.

Cannes Lions Awards
Every year, 20,000 works are submitted from every country across the globe for assessment by an international jury: over 5,000 advertising films, some 10,000 adverts and posters, 1,500 internet titles, over 800 media solutions and more. Some 9,000 publicists from the world over benefit from the opportunity to meet up. However, they also come in the hope of winning one of the Lions, prestigious prizes awarded by specialized juries in several categories. And Apple will be participating in the juries for the first time in the history of the festival, with Tor MYHREN, VP Marketing Communications appointed as the innovation chair. According to Jose PAPA, General Director of Cannes Lions, “the chairs of this years’ jury represent a blend of world famous creative leaders and incredible respected names from the brands and world of technology”.
