There are only have 9 more days left to get your entry in for this year’s Cannes Corporate Media & TV Awards! Final submissions must be received by June 2nd, 2017.

Entries are open to all film producers, client companies, agencies, TV stations, and students, to submit their corporate films, advertisements, online media, documentaries and reports.

Industry professionals, jury members and mass media representatives from all over the world will meet and network during the Awards Festival, which will take place on September 27th and 28th, 2017 in the legendary French ‘city of films’ – Cannes.

Entries will be judged by a panel of industry experts, Academy Award and Emmy winners, along with media, marketing and communication professionals.

Last year’s film of the festival Grand Prix White Dolphin Trophy went to Threesixzero Productions ‘Jus des Idées’ short for Restaurant André.

Jury President, Peter Beck commented,

“A film does what it does best. In a subtle way, the spectator is introduced to the secrets of a sophisticated taste. At the same time, he learns of the protagonist’s uncompromising attitude. This work arouses sensitive feelings and emotions in a masterly way. With its excellent graphic and a magnificent cinematography, one can nearly smell the preparation of the products. In one word: inspiring!”
