"The Titanium and Integrated category at Cannes Lions has become the most important bellwether of the industry, and I am delighted to welcome Bob back to Cannes where he will lead a genuinely outstanding international jury. Bob's passionate belief in creativity, and his unerring eye for the direction in which this industry is heading, will no doubt unearth again the world's most innovative creative thinking," says Philip Thomas, CEO of the Festival.
Added Scarpelli, "Attacking our clients' business issues in innovative and effective ways is critical to the future of the communications industry. We must use all the tools available to us today and invent new ones when necessary. The Titanium and Integrated Lions were created to honour that kind of breakthrough thinking. We will reaffirm that commitment in Cannes this year."

Apart from awarding the Titanium and Integrated Lions, this jury will also award the Grand Prix for Good, a new accolade to reward entries ineligible to win a Grand Prix in their sections because they are made for charities and public services. All the Gold winners in these categories across all entry sections will be judged by this jury, which will choose one piece to receive the Cannes Lions Grand Prix for Good.
Delegates can view all the entries in the Titanium and Integrated section while judging takes place in Cannes during the Festival week. The winners will be announced on Saturday 26 June.
