Cannes Lions announced the first 5 juries for 2013 competition

Creativity, Festivals & Awards

Cannes Lions announced the line-up of the first five juries participating in this year’s event, namely the juries from Creative Effectiveness, Film, Innovation, Press and Titanium & Integrated Lions categories.

The work is at the very heart of Cannes Lions so it is fitting to have such an exceptional jury line-up from around the world. The outcome of their deliberations is crucial to inspiring and advancing the global creative communications industry. We very much look forward to welcoming them all to Cannes in June.
