COVID-19/Coronavirus

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.

If you have any further queries related to Awards please get in touch at awards@canneslions.com.

Glass: The Lion for Change

Glass: The Lion for Change celebrates culture-shifting creativity.

Entries will need to demonstrate ideas intended to change the world; work which sets out to positively impact ingrained gender inequality, imbalance or injustice.

The Glass Lion recognises work that implicitly or explicitly addresses issues of gender inequality or prejudice, through the conscious representation of gender in advertising.

The same piece of work can only be entered once into Glass. Entries into Glass can be for any commercial or non-commercial client, regardless of the product or service or the medium of communication.

All entry fees for Glass are donated to related-charities which will be announced nearer to the festival dates. Shortlisted entrants will be required to present their work live to the jury in Cannes.
