Cannes Lions Adds More Judges To The Two New Categories As Entries Increase

(lifePR) (London, ) The Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity has increased the number of judges for both of the newly launched categories due to the higher than anticipated number of entries received. Four more members have been added to the inaugural Branded Content & Entertainment Lions jury, and two to the new Mobile Lions jury.

Philip Thomas, Cannes Lions CEO, says, "Before introducing any innovation at Cannes Lions, we consult thoroughly with the industry. Whilst we anticipated great support for both of the new categories, the interest shown in them has exceeded our expectations, prompting us to appoint additional judges to enable the time and dedication required for each entry when being considered for a Lion."

Bringing the total number of jury members to 16 for the new Branded Content & Entertainment Lions category are:

Guilhem Arnal, Partner, Chief Creative Officer, Blue, France

Sara Cremer, Managing Director, Redwood, United Kingdom

Ben Flint, Head of Asia Pacific, Fuse, Singapore

Mark Waugh, Global Managing Director, Newcast, ZenithOptimedia, Global

Joining the inaugural Mobile Lions jury, which becomes 12-members strong are:

Geoffrey Handley, Co-Founder, Chief Marketing Officer, The Hyperfactory, USA

Ana Paula Teixeira, CEO & Founding Partner, AndinaTech, Chile

The judges will meet in Cannes next month 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 lead the first ever Branded Content & Entertainment Lions jury and Tom Eslinger, Digital Creative Director of Saatchi & Saatchi Worldwide will chair the inaugural Mobile Lions jury.

Entries are now closed for the Branded Content & Entertainment category. For any late entry requests for the Mobile Lions category, please contact entries@canneslions.com.
