The juries will convene in Cannes to judge all of the entries ahead of the Lions Health Awards Ceremony on 18 June, which will mark the midpoint of the Festival. All of the work will be exhibited across the two day Festival allowing delegates to digest and take inspiration from the best in global healthcare communications.
