The Misfits Media Company are honoured to be named the official Australian Representative to the Cannes Lions International
Festival of Creativity.

We are thrilled to have the opportunity to work with the Australian creative, marketing and media community to help bring their work to the global stage of Lions Festivals.

The Cannes Lions awards are internationally recognised as the most prestigious in advertising and communications celebrating creativity across all areas of business.

Cannes Lions 2019 festival | 17 – 21 June

EVENTS

Attending the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity is a unique experience for those lucky enough to make it over to France in June.

We understand that not everyone in the Australian industry is able to attend and so it’s our aim to bring a taste of the festival back to Australia with us.

It is our intention to run “Download” events in July and August (dates and format TBC) showcasing the very best work that has been awarded at Cannes and recognising our Aussie Lion winners.

See It Be It is an initiative developed and funded by Cannes Lions working towards equal representation of female and male creative directors across the industry. We are planning on holding a local See It Be It event in Australia in 2019.

Make sure you subscribe to our newsletter to stay informed about these upcoming events.

JURIES

As the official Australian Representative to the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity, The Misfits facilitate the selection process by inviting nominations for the jury spots allocated to Australia each year for both Cannes Lions and Spikes Asia.

The Cannes Lions Team make the ultimate selection of jurors, ensuring that each jury contains an even balance of geography, gender, skill and network.
