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.

Industry Craft Lions

The Industry Craft Lion celebrates the creative artistry, talent and skill required to deliver a beautifully executed solution and bring a creative idea to life. 

Entries should demonstrate the highest levels of expertise and vision in the application of creative techniques.

Criteria considered during judging will predominently be the execution.

Single executions of Packaging, Print & Publishing and Outdoor should only be entered into the relevant category. However if they form part of a wider campaign they will be accepted into Brand Communication and Design.

For Standard Print and Outdoor entries each execution constitutes one entry.
For Packaging & Brand Commiunication & Design entries whole campaigns should be entered as one entry.

There is no overall limit to how many times the same piece of work can be entered into Industry Craft.
