Cannes Lions announced the juries for Cyber, Radio and Promo Lions 2012


Cannes Lions organizers announced the members of the juries for Cyber, Radio and Promo & Activation competitions this year. Each jury is chaired by its own jury president: Iain Tait, Global Interactive Executive Creative Director Wieden+Kennedy, leading the Cyber Lions jury, Rob McLennan, Executive Creative Director Net#work BBDO South Africa, takes the helm of Radio Lions Jury and Nick Worthington, Creative Chairman Colenso BBDO New Zealand, is heading up the Promo & Activation Lions jury.

Cannes Lions is a global event on a huge scale and it is therefore imperative that the people judging the thousands of entries are representative of this. It’s always exciting uniting exceptionally talented people from all corners of the world and watching them work together to set new precedents in the creative and communications industries. It will be a pleasure to welcome them to Cannes in June
