Cannes - A total of 43 Lions brought the Saatchi & Saatchi Network in at 3rd in the Network of the Year table at this year's Cannes International Advertising Festival, equalling our 2007 ranking. In all we won 3 Gold, 14 Silver and 26 Bronzes - 10 more than last year.
We won our first Gold Lion in the Film category for Procter & Gamble with Saatchi & Saatchi New York's Crest campaign. This added to the two Golds won earlier in the week by our offices in Denmark and Malaysia in Radio and Outdoor. The Film jury also gave New York two Silvers for Norvartis Buckley's cough syrup and JCPenney 'Aviator, as well as Argentina for Procter & Gamble Ariel 'Little Boy' and Brazil's 'Beard' spot for Play TV. And there was a Bronze for Brazil (Unimed 'War').
Our sister agency, Fallon London, had an extremely successful Saturday night as well, picking up the Grand Prix for their 'Gorilla' spot for Cadbury's, as well as Golds for Sony 'Play Doh' and Skoda 'Cake'. There were also two Silvers for another Sony ad, 'Music Pieces'.
Earlier in the week there was a good showing in the new Design category, which saw all three of our shortlisted ideas convert to Lions. There was Silver for Brazil (Unimed), and a Silver (Sydney Writers' Festival) and a Bronze (Sydney Youth Orchestra) for Australia.
The Cyber competition saw a Bronze for Los Angeles' Toyota Tacoma 'Truck Summoner' site, and in Press there were 4 Silver and 5 Bronzes for the Network.
