It wouldn't be Cannes, the ad industry's week of Mediterranean celebration, without a head-spinning amount of entries, awards and panels. This year was yet another record-setting one, with entries up 7% to 40,133. Two new categories were added, the Glass Lions and Creative Data Lions, and the Lions Health festival entries grew 30%. And it wouldn't be Cannes without endless bottles of rosé, yacht charters and late-night parties to fuel the 13,000 delegates. Here, Cannes by the numbers.
