Cannes Lions is the most prestigious international annual advertising and communications awards. Cannes Lions has today announced Jury Presidents for the two categories at the centre of the new Lions Innovation festival. Y&R’s Global Chief Executive Officer David Sable will take the reins of the first ever Creative Data Lions while R/GA Global Chief Creative Officer Nick Law will be at the helm of the expanded Innovation Lions.
Together, the awards will showcase the relationship between technology, data and ideas which, says Cannes Lions Chairman Terry Savage, has driven the industry forward and will continue to be instrumental in its evolution.
“As the home of creativity, we need to explore what the future of that creativity will look like through a dedicated festival like Lions Innovation. But with the Creative Data Lions and Innovation Lions we are celebrating the ground-breaking work which is already leading the charge.”
Entries to the Creative Data and Innovation Lions will open 22 January 2015. Further information is available at www.canneslions.com/innovation. Full category information will be available online from mid-December. The festival will be held from 21-27 June 2015 in Cannes, France.
