Noteworthy that  the 2021 festival will be fully digital, running from 21-25 June.. Recall, the organisers had earlier announced that it would be holding a physical event this year in France as usual.

The move marks the second consecutive cancellation of the physical event of the festival due to the pandemic.

Philip Thomas, chairman at Lions, said that over the last year the festival had been “consulting with customers“ and working on its plans, which had led to this decision, The Drum reported.

“We are now able to move fully to this format for 2021 – which will have all the celebration, inspiration and participation of Cannes Lions – to unite the global community virtually during Cannes Lions Live this June,“ added Thomas.
