USA TODAY AND GANNETT ANNOUNCE U.S. JURORS FOR 62ND CANNES LIONS INTERNATIONAL FESTIVAL OF CREATIVITY

USA TODAY and Gannett, official U.S. representative to the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity, today announced the jury members chosen to represent the US advertising and communications community at this year’s Festival. The jurors chosen for this prestigious honor will judge more than 37,000 entries from all over the world. Jurors were selected based on a rigorous selection process and each jury contains an even balance of members from around the globe and from a representative spread of agencies, independents and networks.

New in 2015, Cannes Lions launched the Creative Data Lions and expanded the Innovation Lions, both of which will now form a new, two-day Lions Innovation Festival. Similar to Lions Health, it will be part of the 62nd Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity. For more information, please visit the Lions Innovation website. Cannes Lions is also introducing the Glass Lion: The Lion for Change - which honors work that challenges gender bias and shatters stereotypical images of men and women which remain rooted in marketing messages.

As the official U.S. representative to the 62nd Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity, we are proud to celebrate the creative industry leaders that will represent our nation.

Following are the Cannes Lions 2015 U.S. Cannes Lions jury members:
