Last juries for Cannes Lions 2012, announced


Cannes Lions organizers announced the final three juries for this year’s event: Branded Content & Entertainment, Film Craft and Mobile Lions jury.

The jury members will meet in Cannes in June where they will join their respective jury presidents to view, debate and award the work. Avi Savar, Founder and Chief Creative Officer of Big Fuel USA, will chair the first ever Branded Content & Entertainment Lions jury; Ivan Zacharias, Director of Stink, UK, will lead the Film Craft Jury; and Tom Eslinger, Digital Creative Director of Saatchi & Saatchi Worldwide, takes the helm of the inaugural Mobile Lions jury.

This is an exciting year for Cannes Lions, not only does Mobile become an awards category in its own right, but Branded Content & Entertainment Lions is launched. We very much look forward to welcoming the esteemed members of these two new juries, who, alongside the talented Film Craft jurors, will be setting the benchmark for their respective categories, each of which play a crucial role in our ever evolving creative communications industry.
