Through the eyes of a juror: Lulu Raghavan reflects on Cannes 2018

June 28, 2018

I’ve just returned from the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity, which brings together the best creative minds from over 100 countries for a week of inspiration and celebration against the backdrop of the gorgeous French Riviera. This year I didn’t just attend the festival as a delegate—I had the distinct pleasure of being a juror on the Cannes Lions Design Jury and the Young Lions Design Jury.

For delegates, Cannes is a highly enriching experience. You meet diverse people, gain exposure to the best work from around the world, find inspiration in great speakers, and create incredible memories with your colleagues all week long.

As a juror, Cannes is truly transformational.

Cannes announces 2018 jury members including Landor’s Lulu Raghavan

June 13, 2018

CANNES (21 May 2018) – Cannes Lions, the International Festival of Creativity, has announced the 413 jury members chosen to award and celebrate the best creative work from around the world.

This year’s juries are composed of individuals from 50 countries, including for the first time representatives from Georgia, Nigeria, Kenya, and Sri Lanka. Continuing the drive for a more diverse mix within the jury room, this year includes 46 percent female jury members, as well as a wide mix of creative agencies, brands, media owners, and production companies.

Jose Papa, managing director of Cannes Lions said: “The job of the Cannes Lions jury is to act as the custodians of creativity and celebrate work that demonstrates the value of creativity in all its forms. We are committed to ensuring that our juries include a diverse range of people from across the branded communications ecosystem.”

Cannes Lions

Last year the Festival announced new Lions with the introduction of a new awards architecture to better reflect and support the fast-moving creative industries. These Lions include Creative eCommerce Lions, Brand Experience & Activation Lions, Social & Influencer Lions, Sustainable Development Goals Lions, and the Industry Craft Lions. An overall reduction in the number of categories within individual Lions refined the focus, while new categories were introduced to reflect how creative companies are operating.

“Cannes Lions is now in its 65th year. In that time, the industry and the organizations operating within it have changed dramatically. These new specialized Lions require a broader range of skills and experience which will ultimately help expand our perspective of creative excellence,” said Terry Savage, chairman of Cannes Lions. “The Lions are constantly evolving, just as the industry is, and our jury members are fundamental to ensuring that we keep creativity at the core of what we do.”

The 2018 Cannes Lions Awards will be presented at ceremonies taking place each evening throughout the Festival from the 18-22 June.

The 2018 members of the Design Lions jury are:

Lulu Raghavan, Managing Director, Landor, India
