Cannes Lions announces jury presidents

MUMBAI: The Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity has completed its announcements of the 2016 jury presidents, revealing the names of the remaining seventeen.

Lions Festivals CEO Philip Thomas said, “It’s not easy to win a Lion. On average our juries will award just three per cent of more than 40,000 entries. They’re looking for unique work that is creatively exceptional and challenges the norm. What we look for in our presidents is people that have been in this three per cent time and time again – it’s a significant responsibility leading a Cannes Lions jury and we’re incredibly proud to have such a powerful mix of individuals who know what creative excellence looks like, because they have it in abundance themselves.”
