Yes we Cannes!

Canada started strong at this year’s Cannes Lions International Festival Creativity. Before the main event, we picked up three Health Lions – a Silver for JWT and a Silver and a Bronze for DDB.

Then last night at the awards gala, we took home three Gold awards, three Silvers and two Bronzes. As expected, Leo Burnett’s “#LikeAGirl” for Always did well right out of the gate, taking home four of those Lions. Meanwhile, Grey’s work with Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America also made a strong showing with two Lions.
