Cannes Lions 2019: Josy Paul to head Roger Hatchuel Academy selection panel
The organisers of the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity have announced the panel that will select 40 students who will take part in the annual Roger Hatchuel Academy.
Josy Paul, chairman and chief creative officer, BBDO India, has been selected as the head of the panel. Paul will be joined by eight other experts from around the world. 
Inclusion and diversity will be the key focus in the selection process according to a statement from Cannes Lions. 
The Roger Hatchuel Academy was founded in 2003. It is a six-day programme that takes place during the festival. It is designed to help students interested in pursuing a creative path in advertising launch their careers. In total, 40 students will be selected to join the programme this year.
Paul said, “Diversity and inclusion is a mind-altering drug. It's an out of body experience, like having new eyes. It opens the doors of perception and helps access a greater degree of awareness… leading to surprising new ideas and purpose for our work and industry.”
