Cannes Lions Canadian Shortlist Jury 2024: Four Canadian industry leaders named to Shortlist Cannes juries

Hot on the heels of announcing the Canadian Cannes Lions awarding jurors for 2024, The Globe and Mail, Canada’s official representative for the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity, is pleased to announce the Canadian Cannes Lions shortlist jurors for 2024. The shortlist jury conducts the first round of judging virtually in advance of the festival.  

Canada’s Shortlist Jurors are: 

  • Design: Ryan Crouchman, Partner, VP, Executive Creative Director, Design, LG2 
  • Outdoor: Steve Persico, Chief Creative Officer, Leo Burnett 
  • PR: Jenn Duggan, President, Citizen Relations 
  • Social & Influencer: Glen D’Souza, Head of Creative, Forsman & Bodenfors Canada 

“We’re pleased to announce the appointment of these Canadian leaders as Cannes Lions shortlist jurors,” says Andrew Saunders, President and CEO at The Globe and Mail and Chair of the Canadian Cannes Lions Advisory Board. “Their essential role in shaping the competition’s landscape and advancing exceptional creative work will greatly contribute to Canada’s presence on the global stage, as they share their unique perspectives and experiences in the jury rooms”. 

Each year, in consultation with the Canadian Cannes Advisory Board, The Globe and Mail submits a juror nomination list comprised of Canada’s industry leaders with Cannes Lions making the final selection.  Juries are carefully selected to ensure global representation with a balance of agency, network, holding company, independents, gender, and diversity.  

The Globe and Mail has been the official Canadian representative of the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity since 2005, hosting the Canadian Young Lions competitions since 2007.  

Strategy Magazine, Association of Canadian Advertisers (ACA), and the Canadian Media Directors’ Council (CMDC) also support the Canadian Cannes Program as partners.
