Cannes Lions is taking place 21-25 June 2021

This year, we are building Cannes Lions as a digital-first Festival. This means that the physical Festival will have a significant digital component, allowing us to run Cannes Lions as a hybrid event with outstanding live and on-demand content and experiences.

The Lions, the beating heart of Cannes Lions, will definitely be awarded in June, when our juries will award work from across two years so that we can once again recognise and set the global benchmark for creative excellence.

We are still hopeful that we can bring the industry together, in part, in Cannes this year. We are monitoring this fast-changing situation, including the developments and announcements that may affect the running of the Festival. If we can bring people together physically in Cannes, the safety of our delegates and staff will be our top priority. We have detailed health and safety protocols, and are working with industry groups, the City of Cannes, and the French authorities on the safest way to run Cannes Lions.

Further information is available in our Cannes Lions COVID-19 Safety Plan and delegate FAQs.
