I'm not in Advertising. Isn't Cannes the place with the movie stars and the Palm Tree door?
We're so glad you brought that up! Cannes, while famously known for the Cannes Film Festival, is also home to many awards shows and conventions throughout the year, including the largest advertising gathering of the entire season - the Cannes Lions.
What gives with the juries?
To judge the work (submitted from agencies from around the world!), creative is broken up into respective categories depending on the medium and genre of the campaign. Each of the categories have a presiding jury, and each jury has a president.
How many women are Jury Presidents this year?
Reading up on your Ad Age, I see! There are three Jury Presidents that are female this year - the most in history.
