The Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity has completed its announcements of the 2016 jury presidents, revealing the names of the remaining seventeen.
Philip Thomas, CEO, Lions Festivals, said, “It’s not easy to win a Lion. On average our juries will award just 3% of more than 40,000 entries. They’re looking for unique work that is creatively exceptional and challenges the norm. What we look for in our presidents are people that have been in this 3% time and time again – it’s a significant responsibility leading a Cannes Lions jury and we’re incredibly proud to have such a powerful mix of individuals who know what creative excellence looks like, because they have it in abundance themselves.” The full line-up of 2016 Cannes Lions jury presidents are as follows: Creative Effectiveness Lions: Andrew Robertson, Chief Executive Officer, BBDO, Global Creative Data Lions: Tash Whitmey, Group Chief Executive Officer, Havas helia, Global Cyber Lions: Chloe Gottlieb, SVP, Executive Creative Director, R/GA, Global Design Lions: Tristan Macherel, Executive Creative Director, Landor, France Digital Craft Lions: Wesley ter Haar, Founder & COO, MediaMonks, The Netherlands Direct Lions: Mark Tutssel, Global Chief Creative Officer, Leo Burnett Worldwide / Creative Chairman, Publicis Communications, Global Entertainment Lions: Jae Goodman, Chief Creative Officer & Co-Head, CAA Marketing, USA Entertainment Lions for Music: Josh Rabinowitz, EVP/Director of Music, Grey Group, USA Film Lions: Joe Alexander, Chief Creative Officer, The Martin Agency, USA Film Craft Lions: Laura Gregory, Founder & Chief Executive Officer, Great Guns, Global Glass Lion - The Lion for Change: Madeline Di Nonno, Chief Executive Officer, Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media, Global Health & Wellness Lions: Joshua Prince, President, The CDM Group, USA Innovation Lions: Emad Tahtouh, Director, Applied Technology, Finch, Australia Media Lions: Nick Waters, Chief Executive Officer Asia Pacific, Dentsu Aegis Network, Asia Pacific Mobile Lions: Malcolm Poynton, Global Chief Creative Officer, Cheil Worldwide, Global Outdoor Lions: Ricardo John, Chief Creative Officer, J.
