This year, the gathering at the Hilton Convention Centre in Geneva, Switzerland, will transform into a space for the judges to select the winners of the festival’s Grand Prix & Titanium awards.

And in Cuzco’s Sacred Valley (Peru), we will spend a day volunteering with NGO’s working on issues related to the environment, children’s health and education, economic development, and culture.  

On October 17, the winners of Grand Prixes, possibly a Titanium award, will be determined by our panel of judges, who will gather at the Hilton Convention Centre in Geneva, Switzerland.


Geneva has been the social and academic venue for three editions of the Luum Awards. But this year, Luum wants to do things a bit differently. Still, our judges will gather in Geneva for the 2024 edition to determine festival winners.


In the 2023 edition, our select group of judges, consisting of Lauren Jones (Social & Influencer Director, Mattel, Inc. USA), Jaclyn Kaminski (VP, Global Director of Sustainability, McCann Worldgroup UK), Natxo Diaz (Global Head of Craft for Health, VML Health Spain), Mark Whelan (Chairman & CCO, Havas UK), just to name a few, selected winning cases by agencies such as: McCann Paris, Ogilvy NY, M&Csaatchi Indonesia,  McCann Poland, Cossette (Canada), Zubi VML (USA), AKQA (UK), Ogilvy (NY), McCann (China) and Edelman (UK), among others.
