Drawn from some of the biggest names in the technology, innovation and creative sectors, the Lions Innovation juries will view and award pioneering technological creativity.
Led by Jury President, Susan Lyne, President and Managing Partner at BBG Ventures, the jury for the Innovation Lions will set new benchmarks for ground-breaking technology and problem solving. Together, the jury will analyse standalone technological solutions including tools, products, models, platforms, and look at creative campaigns using new tech.
Eric Salama, Chief Executive Officer at Kantar will lead the jury for the Creative Data Lions as they examine work built on the interplay between ideas and information, and look at campaigns which are enhanced or driven by the creative use of data.
Terry Savage, Chairman of Cannes Lions, said, “Lions Innovation is the event where groundbreaking applications of creativity in technology are demonstrated. It's a breeding ground for new ideas to be fostered and exchanged, where partnerships are formed which will propel the industry into the future. The winning work, judged by our global jury members, will offer snapshots of a future-focussed industry and we’re anticipating some cutting-edge innovations to be awarded in 2017.”
