Lions Health Reveals Global Jury Line-Up

Lions Health, the global Festival celebrating creativity in healthcare, has today announced the line-up of 2015 jury members. 

Building on 62 years of Cannes Lions, Lions Health was born out of the belief that creativity in healthcare has the power to help transform lives and make the world a better place. For two days in June, Cannes is the home to Lions Health, a Festival and awards that provides a platform for creatives, global thought-leaders, and marketers, while showcasing the industry’s most impactful work.

About this year’s juries, Philip Thomas, CEO of Lions Festivals commented that it was “testament to both the importance of the awards and the calibre of the juries that so many of this year’s jurors produced work that was of Lion-winning standard at last year’s Lions Health – with their agencies collectively taking home 21 Lions.” He added that he was “looking forward to working with them as they set benchmarks and precedents for an industry that faces unique challenges within the world of creative communications.” 

The Lions Health Awards celebrate creativity in pharmaceutical and health and wellness sectors and this year’s jury brings together a panel of thought-leading creatives from around the world.

Entries into the Lions Health awards are being accepted until 27 March 2015. In a change from last year, all Lions Health shortlist and winning points will count towards the Cannes Lions Network of the Year, Cannes Lions Holding Company of the Year and where relevant, the Cannes Lions Independent Agency of the Year. Non specialist Agency winners in Lions Health (including Independents) will contribute to the Cannes Lions Agency of Year.

The 2015 awards will also see the introduction of two new awards for specialist healthcare agencies: The Lions Health Healthcare Agency of the Year and the Lions Health Healthcare Network of the Year.

Building on industry feedback from last year’s Lions Health, the 2015 awards will move to the Friday night putting them at the midpoint of the Festival rather than the end. “We understand that one of the biggest reasons for attending Lions Health is for people to view and learn from the global work on display and we hope that revealing the winners earlier will allow for a deeper discourse and exchange of creativity,” said Louise Benson, Festival Director, Lions Health.
