Inspiring and challenging creative minds

The Dubai Lynx International Festival of Creativity is the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region’s annual must-attend event for the creative communications industry to learn, network and be inspired.

In 2016, the Festival celebrated 10 years of inspiring creativity at Dubai Lynx. In 2017 the Festival once again takes place at the Madinat Jumeirah, Dubai, from 5-7 March with the Dubai Lynx Awards celebrating the region’s best creative work and closing the Festival on 8 March.

Dubai Lynx is part of Ascential Events (Europe) Limited, organisers of Cannes Lions, Spikes Asia, Eurobest and the Asian Marketing Effectiveness and Strategy Awards. The Festival and Awards are produced in partnership with Motivate, with the support of Dubai Media City (DMC) and in association with the UAE Chapter of the International Advertising Association (IAA).
