USA leads the list with 3370 entries, followed by Brazil (2115), Germany (1891), UK (1680) and India.

In its 57th edition this year, Cannes Lions has received more than 24,000 entries from over 90 countries. This is the fourth highest level of entries ever, an increase of 7% versus last year.

Philip Thomas, Festival CEO said, "Cannes Lions reflects the communications industry, and these results tell a fascinating story. Firstly, of course, they suggest that the industry as a whole is recovering from the distress of 2009 (entries to the Festival were down 20% last year) and indeed they show recovery coming not only from places you would expect like Latin America or India, but also countries like Sweden, Turkey, the UK, France and the USA, all of which have picked up considerably."

"The figures also show different categories showing differing levels of growth. While some traditional sections are down year-on-year, there are significant increases in Media and Cyber as well as in the newer Cannes Lions sections – especially PR and Promo & Activation which have grown by 32% and 43% respectively," said Thomas. "We look forward to welcoming the 12 juries to Cannes where they will take on the daunting task to view, judge, deliberate and honour the best creative work from the world’s communications industry."
