Following the confirmation of their return to Cannes, France from June 20 to 24, the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity has announced its 2022 jury line-up of 290 global experts who represent top global brands, platforms, entertainment, and technology companies and bring a breadth of expertise to the Lions awards. 

We are excited and proud that Chris Chen, Chief Creative Officer of Creative, dentsu China, has been appointed as a member of the Creative Data Lions jury, where he will join an elite creative community to award the world’s very best creative work and benchmark excellence this June in Cannes. 


As Chief Creative Officer, Chris is responsible for leading and integrating the creative teams in dentsu China Creative Service Line. He is tasked with delivering superior quality work, developing new creative products, and offerings, and supporting the agency's creative culture beyond day-to-day client engagements. He also supports and promotes the agency brand and sets the tone for its creative philosophy and excellency. 

Chris is the winner of Campaign Greater China’s Creative Person of the Year 2019 and Greater China Agency Head of the Year 2016. Chris and his team have won more than 150 awards across the world, Asia, and China, including Cannes Gold Lion, LIA, gold in Spikes Asia, Digital Creative/Media Agency of the Year at ROI Festival, and Greater China Most Effective Agency Network of the Year at Effie. He has served on the jury of prestigious awards such as the Cannes Lions Festival, the New York Ad Festival, Spikes Asia, and D&AD. 

This will be also his second official trip to the event. Back to 2018, Chris acted as the Digital Craft jury, while delivered a speech about brand transformation at Innovation Stage at Cannes Lions.


Cannes Lions has been championing creative excellence since 1954 and is recognized as one of the most fascinating events for the global creative industry. In 2021, 29,074 pieces of work are entered to Cannes Lions from across 90 countries. We see brands continue to invest in creativity despite the pandemic impact.
