The Lions Festivals family includes five annual global and regional celebrations of creativity. 


17 - 24 June 2017, Cannes, France

Cannes Lions, The International Festival of Creativity, has been the home of great ideas since 1954.

Over 62 years, we’ve grown into an intense and transformative eight-day programme of inspiration, celebration, learning and networking, driven by the belief that creativity is a force for business, for change and for good.

With more than 15,000 delegates from nearly 100 countries now attending the Festival each year, we are a global meeting-place where branded communications professionals can connect, share and discover.

The world’s most coveted creative accolades are judged and presented at the Festival. The 24 Lions attract more than 40,000 submissions
