The 64th edition will hold between 17-24 June, in Cannes, France. This year, there are no new Lions and significant focus has been placed on improving and simplifying the entry process to ensure it is clear and easy to navigate. Improvements include a new 10-point entry checklist, designed to guide people through the system more effectively.
The Lions, the global awards that celebrate the best creative work, commend and honour 24 key disciplines, from Innovation, Product Design and Entertainment to Creative Data and Outdoor. Entry numbers have grown annually, reaching a record-breaking 43,101 in 2016.
To ensure that the Lions continue to fully represent the industry they serve, subcategories have been revised across some existing Lions in 2017 and amended guidelines will help to outline what the jury will be looking for.
Tham Khai Meng, Co-Chairman & Worldwide Chief Creative Officer, Ogilvy & Mather, Global, commented, "I very much look forward to working with our Titanium jurors to discover the innovation that is the future of our industry and to celebrate the fearless pioneers who are taking us there. I am sure all of us are both humbled and honoured to serve on the jury and excited about the work ahead."
