Cannes Lions 2012 entries now open

The Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity is now accepting entries across all 15 categories for its 2012 awards – Film, Press, Outdoor, Direct, Media, Cyber, Radio, Promo & Activation, Titanium & Integrated, Design, PR, Film Craft, Creative Effectiveness, Mobile and Branded Content & Entertainment – all of which will be judged and awarded by the dedicated juries in Cannes, France, in June.

The entry deadlines for the categories are as follows:
February 17, 2012: Creative Effectiveness Lions
March 9, 2012: Film, Film Craft, Outdoor, Press, Design, Direct, Media, Radio, PR, Promo & Activation, Cyber, Titanium, Integrated, Mobile and Branded Content & Entertainment Lions

New to Cannes Lions 2012
Mobile Lions: The new Mobile Lions will reward the best work which lives on or is activated by a mobile device, app or mobile web. The judging criteria will be based on creativity and the idea, execution (usability, user experience, craft and design), relevance to the mobile platform and results (level of user engagement and any quantifiable outcomes). The categories for the new Mobile Lions will include Creative Use of Technology, Mobile Websites and Web Apps, Mobile Apps, Tablet Apps, Games, Rich Media Mobile Advertising and Integrated Campaigns led by Mobile. Mobile Lions is sponsored by AT&T AdWorks.

Branded Content & Entertainment Lions: This new category will award the best work that demonstrates how a brand has successfully worked independently or in association with a content producer or publisher to develop and create or co-create entertaining and engaging content for their audience. This could be either by creating original content or programming for a brand or by naturally integrating a brand into existing formats by partnering with a publisher or media partner.

Tips on how to enter videos
To assist this year’s entrants, a selection of Tips on How to Enter videos from last year’s Grand Prix winners are available to view on www.canneslions.com.

In addition, there are some Tips on How to Enter videos from past jury presidents and jurors offering advice on creating an entry and how to capture the jury’s attention.
