The organisers of the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity have announced the jury presidents for the 2020 edition.
Representing India on the list is Sonal Dabral, CCO, South and South East Asia and vice chairman, India, Ogilvy. Dabral will head the 'Direct Lions' jury.
The 2020 edition of the festival takes place between 22-26 June 2020.
In a first for the festival, 53 per cent of jury presidents are women. The number was at 33 per cent in 2019.
Simon Cook, managing director, Cannes Lions, said, “We’re delighted to present such an impressive global line-up of experts from all over the world. The Cannes Lions Jury Presidents represent the many facets of the creative global industry and will play a fundamental role in defining the creative benchmark on the global stage in 2020. As the uses of creativity expand and diversify, so does the work and so do our expert juries. This year, we have established gender parity in our president line-up as part of our ongoing commitment to appoint outstanding global talent that represents the full breadth of our diverse community.”
