MUMBAI: Dentsu Webchutney, the creatively-led digital agency from the house of Dentsu Aegis Network, has bagged 1 Silver and 2 Bronze Lions at Cannes Lions 2019.

The agency won a silver for Swiggy’s ‘Voice of Hunger’ campaign in the Social and Influencer category. Meanwhile, it scored a bronze in the Direct Lions category and another bronze in the PR Lions category for its ‘Code Name: Uri' executed for the film URI: The Surgical Strike. 

Commenting on the achievement, Dentsu Aegis Network CEO Greater South and chairman and CEO India Ashish Bhasin said, “Dentsu Aegis Network leading with 19 shortlists and now Dentsu Webchutney winning three metals today further endorses our view that 3-5 years from now, there won’t be anything like a digital agency. All agencies will have to be digital. Old world, legacy creative agencies will vanish. Am particularly happy with Dentsu Webchutney’s performance, across categories and a big congratulations to Sidharth and Team Dentsu Webchutney.”

Dentsu Webchutney co-founder and CEO Sidharth Rao said, “It’s surreal to us at Dentsu Webchutney, but there’s much that’s gone on behind the scenes in terms of building the right set of teams across locations, striving hard to win the client roster that we have today. I believe all of that has come together now.  For now, we will continue to double down on what we’ve been doing, and look forward to even more killer solutions to bring to the table here next year. An area of incredible focus is telling our research and strategy story even better, we lead the business in terms of our thinking and our clients know this, but the ecosystem still looks at Dentsu Webchutney at a pure-play creative agency. We’re ready for brands with outlandish ambitions for what’s possible. Stay tuned.”

With 19 shortlists across direct, outdoor, social and influencer, mobile, brand experience and activation, media and creative e-commerce, Dentsu Aegis Network has emerged on top of the India tally at Cannes Lions 2019.
