Creatives from companies like VMLY&R, BBDO, FCB, TBWA, WT, Leo Burnett, Pixar, Disney, Red Bull and Al Jazera have all trained at the Creative Academy.
The Academy pass includes exclusive access to the Creative Academy Programme - a curated list of award-winning speakers in an intimate classroom setting for our Academy students only.
The course is limited to 30 students so that the class can network with the speakers and have one-on-one sessions. Beyond the classroom, the students get complete access to the Cannes Lions Festival talks, award shows, networking events and the closing party.
