Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity 2017, here we come!

Cannes Lions is one of the largest international gathering of creatives in the fields of advertising, marketing, design & digital innovation. For a whole week the industry will gather at the Palais des Festivals et des Congrès in Cannes, France to learn from and be inspired by the best and to discover new trends. But the excitement does not stop there! The festival also hosts award ceremonies for a multitude of categories such as cyber, media, design, mobile, branded content or innovation.

Sounds amazing, right? We get to go! An action packed and interesting week lies ahead of us. If you are heading there, let us know and let us meet up!


Our mission: discovery & party

The Geekettez will not only be visiting the festival but will also be representing our state Baden-Württemberg and our fellow creatives in Cannes. The state’s delegation consists of 10 representatives of various creative fields and our mission will be to track down trends, learn, network and host a extremely efficient party: the 120-minute-party! Our guests will have 120 minutes EXACTLY to get their groove on. A clock will be ticking to ensure we do not overrun! So if you are one of our guests and are reading this, we recommend to warm up those boogie muscles, while queuing to get in.

Our secret mission: award

While the world will be watching, waiting to see who emerges victorious from the award ceremonies with their very own Lion we will be hunting down our very own heroes to award them with our price the BW Lions Award 2017. Each delegate has chosen one category and will be awarding our beautiful prize to the makers & creators they find most fit.
