For the new edition of BalCannes, the best projects will be selected by three different juries, whose members will offer valuable perspectives of agencies, advertisers and industry media!
Whether you are an established agency or a rising star of the creative industry, BalCannes is a competition where you can prove your worth to others. Not only does it celebrate the spirit of this region, but it also unites the best agencies and advertisers from Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, North Macedonia, Serbia and Slovenia. BalCannes serves as the best proof of outstanding creativity and out-of-the-box innovativeness, which sometimes comes as a result of market conditions, but most often perseveres despite them.
