“Enormous consideration is given to who will judge,” said Philip Thomas, Lions Festivals CEO. “We seek out those who’ve distinguished themselves over the course of a career in creativity – people recognised for their professional achievements, but equally valued for their vision, admired for their passion and trusted for their integrity.”
“The task of judges is to identify truly great creative thinking and award iconic ideas. It involves long hours, impassioned debate and difficult choices. But ultimately their choices will inspire the industry and show the way forward for communications over the coming years.”
Entries are now open with an extended deadline of 10 April. For category details, fees and information on how to enter, or to find out more about our judges, visit
