Cannes Lions Yacht Charter

Cannes, France

By Oliver Pearson

Launching in 1954, 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 what is now Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity was held in Venice and 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.

The 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. Fun fact, the award was for a commercial for Chlorodont toothpaste.

Following the success of their inaugural event, the Screen Advertising World Association (SAWA) hosted the second edition in Monte Carlo, then turning to Cannes the year after. Alternating each year between Venice and Cannes for a few years, the event then settled permanently at the Palais des Festivals et des Congres in 1984.

As of 2023, the Cannes Lions Awards ceremony featured 30 specialist awards over nine categories, with Entertainment Lions for Gaming being introduced that year.

Continued growth and success

Since taking on its residence at the state-of-the-art convention centre, 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 a number of big-name speakers, hosts a range of exciting product launches, and presents an incredible opportunity for up and coming companies to attract new business and make a name for themselves.
