The Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity has announced that David Droga, Founder & Creative Chairman of Droga5, will be honoured with the Lion of St Mark award at this year’s fest.


Droga is one of the most awarded creatives at the Lions. He won his first metal at age 19 and has achieved more than 70 Gold and 15 Grand Prix / Titanium Lions in his career to date.


“The Lion of St. Mark recognises an individual who has made a significant and outstanding contribution to creativity in our industry,” said Jose Papa, Managing Director of Cannes Lions. “His drive, passion and unbounded creative skill has led him to deliver continual award-winning results. He’s set the global standard.”


Added Droga: “I have worked with more talented people and had more opportunities than one creative person deserves. The Lion of St Mark honour is beyond my wildest ambitions. It’s incredible to be recognised with this, when you still feel you have so much more to do and prove. But I will soak it up with pride and humility.”


Droga will be presented with the Lion of St. Mark at the Festival awards ceremony on Saturday, June 24. He will also be speaking on the Cannes Lions stage a day earlier.
