Every year, the African Cristal Festival gathers the leaders of the main networks, agencies, advertising associations as well as former Jury Presidents in the LEADERS GRAND JURY.

The members choose a campaign embodying great creative and strategic trends of the communication industry among the “Gold Cristals” awarded by the Creative Jury (in all the competitions) and select the festival’s most prestigious trophy – the Leadership Grand Cristal.

This encounter is an occasion for professionals to exchange ideas through dedicated networking moments. Eminent personalities share their views on the future of the industry.
