A hand-picked selection of the industry's brightest minds
Each year, entries to the Cannes Lions awards are scrutinised by the industry’s brightest minds. They pore over the work submitted, whittling them down to a shortlist and ultimately awarding the most impressive work, the work that then becomes a touchstone for creativity over the coming year. The jury members are handpicked every year by our dedicated team.
All of our jury members are hand-picked by us as the most highly regarded and best qualified people in the industry to judge the work and determine the winners. Once appointed, they’re bound by a series of obligations which they must commit to in writing, as well as undertaking to uphold the expectations of judging.
To find out what kind of people judge Cannes Lions, take a look at our 2017 jury presidents.
The integrity and relevance of the Lion underpins everything – from the jury selection process to the voting software and everything in between, we go to great lengths to protect the neutrality and fairness of the Awards.
The Best of the Best
Our jury members have one thing in common: they’re curious, ingenious senior creative professionals who are recognised for their achievements, valued for their vision, admired for their passion and trusted for their integrity. After all, they’re poring over work from around the world to award the most coveted creative prize there is: the Lion.
