Cannes Lions is happening and will return to Cannes, France, 20-24 June 2022

The countdown starts today.

Get ready for a reunion like no other, whether you’re planning on joining us live in Cannes, or online.

Here’s everything you need to know about the upcoming 2022 festival, from the awards, to the judging, and back again.

Cannes Lions, together with owners Ascential, has developed a health and safety standard that delivers industry best practice at live events, over the last 18 months. The festival will adhere to the latest health guidelines leading up to and at the event.

Returning the Festival to Cannes means that we can once again bring our jurors together in person. The initial stages of judging will take place remotely with the use of our unique judging technology but we’re delighted to be bringing the jurors back to Cannes to complete the final stages and award the Lions - as they have done since 1954.

Cannes Lions will open for entries on 20 January 2022 and delegate registration on 13 January 2022. Information on the Lions and categories are available on the website.

LIONS has opened its annual State of Creativity Study. Designed to uncover the industry's attitudes and approaches towards creativity, and paint an accurate picture of what will impact the creative economy tomorrow, the results of the study will form the LIONS 2022 editorial agenda across all of its platforms and events. Cannes Lions will open its call for content in January.
