To be on a Cannes Lions jury is the highest accolade in the industry. Jurors are entrusted to select the winning work for 2019, and responsible for steering the future of the industry. As the Canadian Festival representative, in consultation with the Canadian Cannes Advisory Board, The Globe and Mail submits a nomination list comprised of Canada’s industry leaders. Cannes Lions makes the final selection to consider representative nominations along with a balance of agency, network, holding company, independents, gender and diversity.
