Cannes Lions 2022
Cannes Lions 2022

Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity will return as a hybrid festival, in Cannes, France, from 20-24 June 2022.

Cannes Lions is taking extra measures this year to ensure that the festival is accessible to everyone. This year, all selected candidates from across the globe will get to decide whether to join in online or in Cannes.

As the world continues to shift and change, Cannes Lions role as a convening force for the global creative community is starting to evolve. For 2022 and beyond, Cannes Lions will provide an annual forum for the global industry to address the most pressing issues the industry and the world are facing today.

Sustainability is at the top of their list - as it also is for the industry. Cannes Lions have committed to putting a sustainability agenda in place and it is expected that they will deliver their most sustainable festival in history.

Over the last 18 months, Cannes Lions, together with owners Ascential, has developed a health and safety standard that delivers industry best practice at live events. The festival will adhere to the latest health guidelines leading up to and at the event.

The initial stages of judging will take place remotely with the use of their unique judging technology. However, it is (hopefully) expected that jurors may come together in Cannes to complete the final stages, and award the Lions, as they have done since 1954.

Cannes Lions will open for entries on 20 January 2022 and delegate registration on 13 January 2022 – but information on the Lions and categories, along with downloadable entry kits, are available on their website. You can expect more exciting Awards news soon, so keep an eye out for updates here.
