Thousands of advertising creatives are descending upon Cannes, France, this week in the hopes of bringing home a coveted Cannes Lions—perhaps even a Grand Prix, reserved for the most lauded work in a category, as determined by an elite jury.
In a new series we’re premiering this year, we’ll be posting snapshots, taken around town, of many of the creatives behind some of 2023’s top Lion contenders and winners. We’ll also be asking them about their campaigns, why they’re special, other work they’ve admired lately, some pro-tips for surviving Cannes and more.

In addition, Ad Age reporters and editors will keep you up to date all week long with happenings from the industry’s biggest awards celebration, which marks the second straight year the event has been held in person since the beginning of the pandemic. We’ll be covering all the top winners, many of the panel discussions in the Palais as well as other talks and activations happening up and down the Croisette.
