Lions Creativity Logo



LIONS Membership is pleased to announce the launch of our Up & Comers Showcase - a spotlight for new and emerging talent. LIONS Membership, alongside a panel of industry leaders, are looking to champion 25 LIONS members, who’ve produced original, non-commerical works of art that exemplify the theme: Unconventional Creativity.

Successful entrants of the Up & Comers Showcase will benefit from having their work showcased on and displayed in a gallery, alongside their photo and biography, at the 2022 Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity.

So, show us what you’ve got. We want to see your most disruptive, raw and unbridled artistry. Artwork that exemplifies Unconventional Creativity, shifts societal norms and inspires change. Artwork that stops the community in its tracks and commands attention.

Who's it for?
