Juries

As the official U.S. Representative to the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity, NCM, will facilitate the selection process by inviting nominations for each jury spot allocated to the U.S. for 2018. The Cannes Lions Team will make the ultimate selection of jurors, ensuring that each jury contains an even balance of geography, gender, skill and network.

Cannes Lions 2018 – U.S. Jury Members

A new awards architecture has been implemented by Cannes Lions for 2018. This will allow related Lion categories and juries to be grouped together in "Tracks". This new structure sets clear creative lanes for entries to be made and judged. Please note the new 2018 juries which reflect these changes: Brand Experience & Activation; Creative eCommerce; Industry Craft; Social & Influencer and Sustainable Goals Development (SDG). The chart below explains these new "Tracks"

The following chart outlines the nine “Tracks” and the juries which will fall into each one.
