Advice from the experts

Have you got your sights set on one of those iconic trophies? We’ve gathered insights from Cannes Lions jury members to give your work the best possible shot at success.
  • Tick Keep it simple “Less is more. Many case films fail to communicate a clear idea and a compelling strategy.”
  • Tick Keep it brief  “The Juries are perfectly capable of grasping whether a project has merit based on a concise, coherent explanation.” 
  • Tick Keep it international “English isn’t always the first language. Entries that hinge on a cultural nuance may require additional information.” 
  • Tick Keep it fresh “You may have lived and breathed the work, but the Jury hasn’t. Look at the idea with a fresh pair of eyes and distill it for a new audience.” 
  • Tick Keep it relevant  “Carefully consider the best category for your entry and ensure that it demonstrates both relevance and specifity for your audience.”
