MUMBAI: The final names that will make up a collection of outstanding jury presidents at this years’ Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity, were yesterday announced by the Festival organizers. Renee Wilson, President of MSLGROUP’s North America operations will be one of four female Jury heads this year, and will lead the PR awards selection.
“Never before in the history of the public relations industry, has there been more of an opportunity for the PR function to demonstrate leadership, and the many multi-faceted contributions it can make to the broad world of communications and engagement. I'm thrilled to serve as PR jury president for Cannes Lions at this transformational moment in time,” said Wilson.
Commenting on the Jury heads announced in the last two weeks by the festival, Terry Savage, Chairman of the Lions Festivals added, “Cannes Lions sets precedents and benchmarks in creative communications the world over. This is only made possible by pulling together the greatest and most respected minds from across the industry. 2014 sees a collection of leading names coming together in Cannes to preside over their respective juries and it’s a real privilege to have them working alongside us.”
