The Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity has announced that entertainment industry icon, Jeffrey Katzenberg, will be honoured as the Media Person of the Year 2019. Katzenberg will be presented with the award at an evening Awards Ceremony on Wednesday, 19 June 2019, during the annual Festival.
Jeffrey Katzenberg is the founder and chairman of the board of Quibi, a mobile-first media platform incubated at WndrCo. He is also the co-founder and managing partner of WndrCo, a holding company that invests in, acquires, develops and operates consumer technology businesses.
Philip Thomas, Chairman, Cannes Lions, said, “Jeffrey Katzenberg encapsulates everything the Media Person of the Year award represents. His unbounding creative leadership and vision has led to the transformation and ground-breaking success of high-profile businesses across the entertainment, media and technology landscape. Katzenberg is a great friend of the Festival, who has brought his insight and inspiration to our stages so successfully in recent years. It’s a huge honour to present him with this prestigious award.”
Jeffrey Katzenberg, Quibi Founder and Chairman of the Board, commented, “Over my career I have had the honor of working in many different forms of storytelling, from film to television to the Broadway stage, but the journey we are on today with Quibi is the most exciting one yet, as we embark on a new form of storytelling. By bringing together the very best of Hollywood and Silicon Valley, we hope to usher in the era of mobile-first entertainment. On behalf of everyone at Quibi, we’re very thankful to Cannes Lions for this honor.”
Jeffrey Katzenberg will also be speaking on the Cannes Lions stage this year, in the MediaLink hosted session Raising the Bar on the Small Screen.
