Lions Entertainment has announced the jury members who will judge the Entertainment Lions and the Entertainment Lions for Music awards at this year’s Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity.

Lions Entertainment is the two-day specialist event that will take place on June 21-22, 2017 as part of Cannes Lions. Lions Entertainment focuses on the future of the entertainment industry and brings together global brands and entertainment creators to explore how content is incorporated into mainstream culture through effective storytelling. The 2017 content programme combines inspirational speakers and trends and insights sessions, alongside live performances from global talent. Shortlisted entries for the Entertainment Lions and the Entertainment Lions for Music will be announced and showcased during the Festival, and the winners revealed at the Awards Ceremony on June 21, 2017.

Commenting on the announcement, Louise Benson, Executive Festival Director, Lions Entertainment, said, “We’re delighted to announce such brilliant jury members to lead Lions Entertainment this year. Both Lions turn the attention on captivating content that turns consumers into fans and we can’t wait to see the brilliant work that wins in 2017 and sets the standard of excellence for the industry.”

Lions Entertainment had last month named PJ Pereira, Co-Founder and Chief Creative Officer, Pereira & O'Dell, Global and Olivier Robert-Murphy, Global Head of New Business, Universal Music Group, Global, as jury presidents for Entertainment Lion and Entertainment Lion for Music.

While the Entertainment Lion showcases work that elevates branded content into the cultural mainstream, communicating a brand message or connecting with consumers in a new way, Entertainment Lion for Music honours original production, promotion or distribution of music for brands, where a recording artist or platform is used to communicate with consumers.
