“I’m absolutely thrilled to be asked to judge Cannes 2024. It’s professionally and personally a huge honour given that Cannes is the pinnacle of marketing creative excellence. I’m also really looking forward to adding my voice to the room and looking to unearth the best work in the world.”

The Roger Hatchuel Student Academy offers a unique learning experience for students interested in pursuing a creative path in advertising, providing invaluable insights, training and skill development.

According to Keith O’Connor, talent attraction manager, IAPI: “After a rigorous selection process, the students who will attend the Roger Hatchuel Student Academy at Cannes Lions this year have been chosen. 30 students from 30 different countries will join Cannes Lion at the Festival, where they’ll have the opportunity to kick-start their creative careers with the Academy’s highly curated learning programme. Throughout the week, they’ll explore different avenues of the industry, learn about the creative process, grow their personal brand and build a network of global peers.”

“As I prepare to go to Cannes for the Academy, I’m feeling a mix of excitement and nerves. I’m really looking forward to soaking up everything at the festival, surrounded by creatives from all over the world. I’m excited to learn from the workshops and talks through the Academy and make new connections,” adds Furlong.
