Cannes Lions Adds Three Jury Presidents For 2021 Festival

Cannes Lions rounded out its list of jury presidents for the 2021 Lions Festival of Creativity. Jurors will judge work created over the past two years given the postponement of the awards portion of last year’s festival which moved to a virtual format given the pandemic. 

Newly announced jury presidents include Merlee Jayme, global president Dentsu McGarrybowen and head of the agency’s operation in the Philippines. Jayme will head the Radio & Audio Lions jury.

Netflix global CMO Bozoma Saint John has been named president of Glass: The Lion for Change Jury and Geoff Northcott, Global Chief Experience Officer, AKQA will oversee the jury for Creative Business Transformation Lions.

The awards organization, part of Ascential Events, announced last week plans to resume an in-person festival in June in Cannes.
