This year marks the 65th edition of the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity.

Marie-Louise Alvær of PHD Norway will be judging the Media category (shortlist). “The jury work starts pretty soon, there are a lot of cases to go through so I’m keen to get started,” she told Kampanje.

When asked if she would be going to Cannes during the festival, Alvær commented: “Hopefully! Last year was very inspiring and academic; it’s a great way to meet colleagues from the PHD network, as well as lots of exciting people in a more casual setting. It’s a fantastic way to attend lots of discussions and learn from experts in the industry.”

Cannes Lions takes place from 18 to 22 June 2018.
