“For the fourth year in a row we’ve seen a record number of total entries taking part in Cannes. We are seeing the strongest growth in the most recently launched categories: Titanium and Integrated, Promo and Radio; robust growth in Cyber, Media, Outdoor and Direct and note the decline in film entries, a trend that has been apparent for the last three years” said Terry Savage Festival Executive Chairman. “Industry trends are continuing to evolve and showcasing work at a global level in Cannes is more important than ever”, continued Savage.
