Call on Contagious to see the best work of the year and our pick of what will be the talk of the Croisette in 2012

If the scene out of your office window looks anything like ours here in a drizzle and wind-swept London, then it may surprise you to hear that there are just 61 days left until this year's Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity! That's right - in just two months the world's advertising industry and its clients will descend on the French Riviera to celebrate the most game-changing campaigns and suck up every last morsel of insight from the impressive array of seminars on offer... 

Of course this also means that it's time to signal the return of Contagious' Cannes Contenders briefing session - a globally-recognised, must-see source of inspiration and insight for brands and agencies, Croisette-bound or not. Interested? Let us explain...

Covering the most exciting and relevant categories including Film, Cyber, Integrated, PR and of course the much-coveted Titanium, the Contagious editorial team has once again skimmed the cream off the top of all the work we've seen in the past twelve months. Over the course of one hour, your very own Contagious editorial bods will take you through at least 20 individual case studies, providing a unique dose of Contagious insight - basically why it rocked our world and what we think your team can take away from it.

Previous years' Cannes Contenders presentations have yielded, on average, a 94% success rate in terms of predicting what work will scoop the Lions, so at a bargain price of £1200, there's no excuse not to book yours now!

For those of you whose diaries are looking a little stacked in-between now and June, we are also pleased to announce a new retrospective option - Cannes Deconstructed. As well as being updated with all the winners, this presentation will examine the case studies within the context of the most talked-about trends and insights from the week's must-see seminars. Cost: £1800.

Now if you'll excuse us, it's about time we dusted off our flip flops...
