MUMBAI: The last day of the 61st edition of Cannes Lions saw JWT India grabbing a total of four Lions. With this the agency made its way to lead the Indian score chart in this edition of Cannes Lions.
The agency won a silver Lion for Nike Cricket’s ‘Make Every Yard Count’ campaign in the Film Craft and two silver Lions in the ‘Branded Content & Entertainment’ category. This particular work by JWT also fetched a bronze in the film category.
Lowe & Partner’s HUL campaign titled ‘Kaan Khajura Tesan’ received a bronze Lion in the ‘Branded Content & Entertainment’ category.
With seven Lions in its kitty, McCann has grabbed the second spot, while O&M with its six Lions came third.
In the Young Lions competition for marketers, the Indian team from Hindustan Unilever bagged a silver metal. No Indian entry won the Titanium and Integrated Lions.
Though this year the number of Lions won by Indian agencies have dropped but discussions around a few Indian campaigns such as ‘Google Reunion,’ HUL’s ‘Kaan Khajura Tesan’ and few others made a significant impression in front of the global creative fraternity.
While this year, India bagged 27 Lions, last year it had won 33.
