Stimulant rounds up Canada’s top ad ideas

Just in time for Cannes, we’ve compiled a retrospective of the year’s best, adjudicated along Lions category lines.

Stimulantonline.ca curates random creative fodder from the world of art and design (as well as the downright bizarre), and its weekly Top Ad posts feature the most interesting output of Canada’s creative community (you’re all invited to sign up for free e-updates on what Canada’s adverati are up to). Just in time for Cannes, we’ve compiled a retrospective of the year’s best, adjudicated along Lions category lines. These picks are the culmination of a lengthy process: we panned our archives and solicited contenders from Canada’s ad gurus, then cross-referenced against major award hauls before debating which would board the ark. The final pairings illustrate how interesting and indelibly intertwined with culture, entertainment and social issues the art of persuasion has become. Enjoy the stimulant experience.
