First Cannes Creative Effectiveness Jury Announced

The organisers of the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity have announced the line-up of the inaugural 2011 Cannes Creative Effectiveness jury.

Chaired by Jean-Marie Dru, Chairman of TBWA Worldwide, the 20-strong member jury is made up of both senior agency professionals and clients from around the world, who will award Creative Effectiveness Lions to entries which have shown measurable and proven impact on a client’s business. The judging process will be based on Strategy (25%), Idea (25%) and Results (50%), and only entries that were either shortlisted or Lion winners, across all categories, at Cannes Lions 2010 will be eligible to enter since these will have already been judged and established as being creatively world-class by last year’s juries.

“This jury is a great mix of very senior industry leaders both from the agency side and client side, who appreciate the enormous value of combining creativity and effectiveness when marketing a product or brand and the success it brings,” says Philip Thomas, Cannes Lions CEO. “Whilst the creative aspect has already been judged, this jury will turn their experience and skills to the effectiveness element of the entries, ensuring that those most worthy cases are deservedly honoured.”

The deadline for all Cannes Creative Effectiveness entries is 4 March 2011 to allow PricewaterhouseCoopers time to independently verify the data. Entrant companies that require assistance should contact Sue Cheung on +44 (0) 20 7728 4168 or suec@canneslions.com. The winners will be honoured on Saturday 25 June alongside the Film, Film Craft, Titanium and Integrated Lions winners.
