About Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity

Held June 17–25, 2017 in Cannes, France, the annual International Festival of Creativity is one of the largest advertising and communications events in the world. Comprised of four festivals—Cannes Lions and the concurrently held Lions Health (for work in the medical and healthcare fields), Lions Innovation (technology and innovation fields), and the new from 2016 Lions Entertainment (music and entertainment fields)—the International Festival of Creativity this year drew over 40,000 entries in total. With a heritage of more than 60 years of awarding advertising, the Festival also features seminars and round table discussions on cutting-edge topics, and has evolved into a venue for the world’s advertising and communications community to gather and network. Cannes Lions is not simply a competition to consider the relative merits of different examples of creativity, it has become a place to catch glimpses of the future of advertising and communications.
