Lions Entertainment, the new specialist event dedicated to unskippable creativity at the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity, has today announced the jury members for the Entertainment Lions and the Entertainment Lions for Music.
Bringing together brands and creators, the event encompasses how content is incorporated into mainstream culture through effective storytelling and compelling content.
Evolving from the Branded Content & Entertainment Lions, the Entertainment Lions will honour work that has turned content into culture, while the Entertainment Lions for Music celebrate how integral music is to effective branded content.
Commenting on the announcement, Terry Savage, Chairman, Lions festivals, said, âIn the inaugural year of Lions Entertainment we have combined creative pioneers across the spectrum of music, sport, gaming and talent with specialists in the industry to get the widest range of perspectives.
