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.

Creative Data Lions

The Creative Data Lions celebrate the interplay of ideas and information.

Entries will need to demonstrate how the work was enhanced or driven by the creative use, interpretation, analysis or application of data. The creative use of data must sit at the core of the idea and the results / impact must be clear and robust.

A number of criteria will be considered during judging and weighted as follows: 30% strategy; 30% application; 20% innovation; 20% impact and results.

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