The Cannes Lions advertising conference—or, International Festival of Creativity, if you will—takes place this week on the French Riviera.

Quartz is again producing a special pop-up edition of our Daily Brief email for the festival, which runs from June 17-21. You can sign up for free to receive it every day, whether you are ideating with fellow creatives over canapés in Cannes or following along with a sandwich at your desk back home. (Dommage.)

Our correspondents will scour the beaches, villas, and yachts collecting news, gossip, and celebrity sightings throughout the week. As always, we expect to encounter our fair share of jargon along the way.

In that spirit, we present our fourth-annual installment of Cannes Lions bingo, featuring the hottest buzzwords in the world of advertising and marketing. (Here are the cards from 2016, 2017, and 2018, to relive the memories.)

Play along, tell your friends, and don’t miss the Cannes Daily Brief this week.

📬 Kick off each morning with coffee and the Daily Brief (BYO coffee).
