Launching in 1954, the Cannes Lions Festival of Creativity has become one of the most vital and established events for creative marketers keen to showcase their work.

Inspired by the Cannes Film Festival, the first edition of the Cannes Lions celebration was held in Venice and was previously named the ‘International Advertising Film Festival’.

Designed to recognize the creative minds in marketing, the event offered an award for the most impressive advertisement designed for cinema.

A history of Cannes Lions

Styled on the ‘lion of Venice’ statue, which occupies a large part of the eastern column in the Piazza San Marcos, the now iconic trophy was first awarded to a team of Italian filmmakers for a commercial about Chlorodont toothpaste.

Following the success of the inaugural event, the Screen Advertising World Association (SAWA) hosted the second edition of the Cannes Lions in Monte Carlo, Monaco, then Cannes the year after. 

Alternating each year between Venice and Cannes for a few years, the event permanently settled at the Palais des Festivals et des Congres in 1984. Making the Cannes Lions award ceremony an ideal stop for French Riviera yacht charters.

Since taking on its residence at the state-of-the-art convention center adjacent to Vieux Port in Cannes, Cannes Lions has grown considerably with new categories introduced each year to support emerging digital and social media trends.

An unmissable event for creative advertisers, the week-long festival attracts big-name speakers, hosts a range of exclusive product launches, and presents an incredible opportunity for up-and-coming companies to attract new business and make a name for themselves to all visitors and charter guests from visiting France yacht charters.

Expanding its list of awards over the years, the most recent additions include the Entertainment Lions for Gaming in 2023, and the Luxury & Lifestyle Lions in 2024.
