Cannes Lions award-winning ideas should be celebrated, and we don’t think it’s an appropriate time for that right now.

We’re grateful to all of your teams who have already spent a great deal of time on this year’s awards and the event. Their efforts won’t go wasted.

Work from the 2020 festival will be judged at the 2021 festival. The Cannes Lions Awards will be held in Cannes between June 21-25, 2021. The work eligible for each year’s festival will be judged separately. Separate Lions will be awarded accordingly.

We look forward to celebrating and honouring the work – and bringing the community together again when the world will hopefully be a more stable and optimistic place.

Radio & Audio Lions

The Radio & Audio Lions celebrate creativity for the airwaves and audio content.

Entries will need to demonstrate ideas that are wired for sound. That is, work that communicates a brand message through audio excellence, sonic innovation or superior aural storytelling.

Criteria considered during judging will predominantly be the idea and the execution. There is no overall limit to how many times the same piece of work can be entered into Radio & Audio as long as the categories chosen are relevant. However, the same piece of work may only be entered once in ‘A. Radio & Audio: Sectors’.

In sections A and B each execution constitutes one entry and all executions must have run within the eligiblity period.

In Sections C and D multiple executions must be entered as one entry however all Radio & Audio executions must have run within the eligiblity period.
