The Canadian Cannes Lions Advisory Board has the honour of submitting nominations to Lions as potential jurors for the 2024 Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity.

Nominations for the 2024 Cannes Lions Festival can be made by submitting a nomination form.  The Canadian Cannes Lions Advisory Board will review the submissions the week of November 6 and will notify those who will be put forward as official nominations to Lions before November 17.

In 2024, Lions has developed a new regional framework to ensure that global society is represented across all the juries. Within each region, each market has been allocated a selection of these spots based on their recent participation and success, with the remainder as wildcard places.

Canada is guaranteed 7 awarding jury positions and 2 shortlist* jury positions without specific category allocations.  Once all submissions have been made, Lions will determine which categories and candidates are best suited.  Lions feels this will provide more flexibility to select the best talent for each lion.

Please ensure you indicate the top 3 categories for your nomination and that the nominee would be available to travel to Cannes, France for the duration of judging during in June 2024.

Here’s a link to the Jury Weekplan here.
