Cannes Lions, the International Festival of Creativity, has announced the presidents that will lead juries at the 2015 edition of the awards.
Isobar Global CEO Jean Lin is President of the Cyber Jury, the first time an Asia Pacific leader has held this position.
Commenting on the appointments, Lions Festivals’ Chairman, Terry Savage, said, “We have always selected the most awarded, respected global creative leaders to guide our juries. This year, it is particularly exciting to see so many women numbered among that elite group. We are looking forward to a time when there is true gender balance in the industry and this will be unremarkable, but in the meantime the female representation is something that we are passionate about.”
Ms Lin said on her appointment, “We are living in the most exciting of times in our industry and the digital landscape has never been at more of a tipping point, into the era of Brand Commerce in which digital technology infuses brand experience with transactions and innovation. It is the perfect time to take up the presidency of the Cannes Lions Cyber Jury – witnessing the redefinition of digital creativity. I am honoured to lead a jury of my peers and excited to see work and ideas from across the world. At Isobar, we strive daily to deliver what we call “Ideas Without Limits” and this is the lens I will view entries through and will ask my fellow jurors to do the same.”
