The Innovation Lions shortlist presentations take place on the Awards Hub Stage from Monday to Wednesday and the winners will be announced onstage on Thursday 20 June.
Innovation jury president and innovation track ambassador Bill Yom and global creative director of Cheil Worldwide said, “This year’s Innovation Lions shortlist is an exciting essence of creative excellence and I’m happy to see the work coming from countries across the world. Every shortlist candidate team should be proud to reach this stage. The Innovation Jury is looking forward to watching each presentation during live-judging on the Cannes Lions stage. The Stage is yours, not ours.”
The shortlist for Glass: The Lion for Change includes 23 entries from 12 countries, including: Brazil, Canada, Denmark, France, Germany, Iceland, India, Poland, Sweden, The Netherlands, UK and USA and attendees of this year’s Festival can see the presentations live in The Workshop Room on Tuesday and Wednesday.
This year’s Glass: The Lion for Change winners will be honoured onstage on Friday 21 June in the final Awards Show of 2019.
Jaime Robinson, chief creative officer of Joan Creative and this year’s Glass Lion Jury President said, “This year’s best work was a combination of powerful stories and really genius media-tweaking ideas, all hell bent on challenging norms. I think we’re all dying to get into the jury room, learn more about the shortlisted work, and of course, discuss!”
The Titanium Lions jury, led by Jury President David Lubars, chief creative officer worldwide, chairman North America of BBDO, selected 20 pieces of work to be presented live at this year’s Festival. The entries span nine countries, including: Colombia, France, Germany, Poland, Spain, Israel, UAE, UK and USA with presentations taking place in Redac 1 across Tuesday 18 and Wednesday 19 June and winners awarded onstage on Friday 21 June.
Commenting on the shortlist, David Lubars said, “Dan Wieden suggested the Titanium Lions back in 2003. His original charter for the award was to recognize work that was so forward thinking, it was difficult to fit it into a conventional category. It was work that showed the industry a new direction. The 2019 jury has created a shortlist we believe adheres to Dan’s charter; we’re excited about it, we believe you will be, too.”
Simon Cook, managing director, Cannes Lions, said, “We’re delighted to announce the first shortlists that represent the best in creativity from across the globe in these three highly competitive categories. Live judging allows more Cannes Lions delegates to gain insights and learn what creative excellence look like.”
