The organisers of the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity have announced members of an additional three juries -- Cyber, Design and Direct Lions categories.
Commenting on the jury line-up, Philip Thomas, CEO of Lions Festivals said, âThe prestige associated with winning a Lion is largely a result of the calibre of the professionals judging the work. It is therefore fitting to have such a formidable group of industry experts, who will no doubt help inspire and advance the global communications industry with the outcome of their deliberations. We very much look forward to welcoming them all to Cannes in June.â
The juries will be chaired by Susan Bonds, CEO, 42 Entertainment, USA (Cyber Lions); Karl Heiselman, CEO, Wolff Olins, USA (Design Lions); and James McGrath, Creative Chairman, Clemenger BBDO Melbourne, Australia (Direct Lions).
