Championing Creativity Since 1954

Today, the Cannes Festival of Creativity has evolved into a networking event. On top of being a hub for the creative world, it’s also a hub for the tech and media world.

Is Advertising Fading Away With Today’s Trends?

Not at all. If anything, it is evolving in new unthinkable ways as times change. Technology pushes innovative change and as new platforms, software, and apps appear to disrupt consumers behavior all over the world, creatives step up to tackle the challenge of telling stories in unique ways.

The Festival is aware of new technological trends and this can be seen in recently added awards. With categories like innovation, mobile, digital craft, and creative effectiveness, creators, and thinkers of the tech world will surely not feel left out of any category.
