The organisers of Cannes Also say the exhibition ‘seeks to showcase the wonderful work creatives often produce in their spare time’. This year’s inaugural exhibition will focus on photography.
Photographer Rankin will be guest judge and will work with The Brand Union and Lambie-Nairn to select images. The two consultancies will also design and curate the exhibition space, which will be outside the Palais des Festivals in Cannes.
Rankin says, ‘In a world where commercial art is king, it’s great to be part of celebrating individuals’ creative talent.’
The deadline for submissions is 29 April. The exhibition will run during Cannes Lions from 19-25 June 2011.
