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.

Media Lions

The Media Lions celebrate the context of creativity.

Entries will need to demonstrate an inspiring and innovative implementation of ideas; work which is enhanced and amplified by a game-changing channel strategy.

A number of criteria will be considered during judging and weighted as follows: 30% insight and idea, 20% strategy and targeting; 20% execution; 30% impact and results.

The same piece of work can be entered up to four times in Media. However, the same piece of work may only be entered once in ‘A. Media: Sectors’.
