Cannes daily global podcast episode 1: Awards preview and new humour category

As Cannes Lions 2024 kicks off on 17 June, Campaign's editors and journalists from around the world are taking part in a daily podcast during the five-day festival.

Cannes daily global podcast episode 1: Awards preview and new humour category

In this first episode, we hear from Gideon Spanier, UK editor-in-chief of Campaign, Maisie McCabe, UK editor of Campaign, Alison Weissbrot, editor-in-chief of Campaign US, Rahat Kapur, editor of Campaign Asia, and David Brown, joint editor of Campaign Canada, who come together to make their predictions for Cannes Lions 2024.

We discuss our Cannes Contenders—the creative work that we hope will do well in the Lions awards—and look forward to the new humour category, plus we offer practical tips for getting through the “marathon” week.

Campaign also speaks to festival CEO Simon Cook as award entries are “broadly flat” on a year earlier and the Olympic Torch comes to Cannes on the Tuesday of the festival.

We are hosting the Campaign daily global podcast for the second year in a row – with a different mix of Campaign editors and journalists who are on the ground in Cannes talking each day.

Each show will follow a similar format as we are going to record each episode at the end of the day. We will tell you about who’s won all of the top Lions awards—the Grands Prix—and we will report all the big news from the talks and sessions at the Palais and the evening parties.

Look out for a Campaign Cannes email bulletin at about 10pm French time every evening and make sure you follow the Campaign podcast wherever you listen to your podcasts.

You can watch the Cannes Contender ad from Sammakorn, which is mentioned in this episode, here.
