|Creative Effectiveness sub-category enhancements announced to recognise the growth in business-driven creativity|
LONDON, Feb 14, 2017 - (ACN Newswire) - Cannes Lions has today announced that Chief Marketing Officer of Airbnb, Jonathan Mildenhall, will lead the Creative Effectiveness Jury at the 64th Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity in June.
The Creative Effectiveness jury comprises an equal mix of top leaders from clients and agencies across the world. Mildenhall has worked on both sides during his phenomenal career, making him ideally placed to lead the Creative Effectiveness jury. Starting out at McCann-Erickson in 1990, Jonathan Mildenhall was Vice-President, Global Advertising Strategy and Content Excellence at Coca-Cola when the company won Cannes Lions Creative Marketer of the Year in 2013. And he became Chief Marketing Officer of the 'sharing economy super brand' Airbnb in 2014.
Jonathan Mildenhall, Chief Marketing Officer, Airbnb, said, "I've worked with Cannes Lions for over two decades and I'm privileged to return this year as the Creative Effectiveness President. Alongside my jury, we'll honour work that doesn't just measure the impact of creativity, but also drives cultural change and business results. I believe our industry is becoming more inclusive, but we still have work to do - diversity informs everything I'm part of and I want to accelerate that change further."
Creative Effectiveness is the only global award to recognise the link between award-winning creativity and business results. Creative Effectiveness has grown to become one of the industry's principle awards and entry numbers have vastly increased since it launched in 2011. Any piece of work which has won a Lion in the preceding three years can be submitted into Creative Effectiveness, allowing the jury to select winners that have had a long-term impact on a business or brand.
Sub-category changes announced
In response to the growing role of creativity in a wider range of business objectives, the Jury will now be asked to consider sub-categories within Creative Effectiveness. Submissions are invited for regional and global campaigns, longer-term brand programmes and 'creativity for good'. Lastly, a new sub-category called 'creative marketing effectiveness' is designed for brand marketer initiatives where the client played a proactive role in the work's creation and where effectiveness was embedded at the heart of the idea.
For 2017, the Creative Effectiveness sub-categories are:
- Creative Effectiveness
- Creative Effectiveness for Good
- Creative Regional Effectiveness
- Creative Global Effectiveness
- Creative Longer-Term Effectiveness
- Creative Marketing Effectiveness
