What is Cannes Lions?

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.
