Cannes Lions 2014: Lions Health names jury presidents

Lions Health, the new two-day festival and awards celebrating creative communications in pharma, healthcare and wellness, taking place on June 13-14, 2014 in Cannes, France, has announced that Kathy Delaney, Global Chief Creative Officer of Saatchi & Saatchi Wellness, and Jeremy Perrott, Global Chief Creative Officer of McCann Health, have been named as the first ever jury presidents for the inaugural Lions Health Festival.

Delaney will lead the Health & Wellness jury, judging consumer products and education & services campaigns. “I am extremely honoured to accept this position as leader of the jury for these prestigious and exciting new awards. Lions Health is an exciting opportunity to showcase the work that’s pushing the boundaries of creativity in products and services that empower people to lead longer and fuller lives. It will be truly inspiring to see them recognised and I can’t wait to see the work,” she said.

Perrott will chair the Pharma category, judging communication campaigns that are solely for the attention of healthcare professionals and non-healthcare professionals. Commenting on his appointment as Pharma Jury President, Perrott said, “Our jobs as first-ever Cannes Lions Health presidents is to set the criteria and standard from which all future Lions Health juries will evolve. To have your work judged in this premier festival will be an achievement. To win a Health Lion will be a privilege. To be valued and cherished. But winning a Health Lion will not be easy as it represents the best work on the global stage. There will be no middle ground.”

Terry Savage, Chairman of Lions Festivals, added here, “We are absolutely delighted to have onboard Kathy and Jeremy as jury presidents in our inaugural year. Leading their respective juries, they will be seeking to elevate creativity in healthcare communications which operates in a highly restrictive framework, ultimately improving worldwide standards of health and well-being. Their expertise, knowledge and skills will be paramount to Lions Health.”

The OOH sector is among the fastest growing, globally. Brands and marketers have realized its potential and impact and begun to craft medium-specific adverts. Self-regulation is not only necessary but also essential to growth of the sector.
