Leo Burnett Wins 46 Lions at 2017 Cannes Festival
14 offices bring home Lions this year, including a fifth network Grand Prix in four years
The global network won 46 Cannes Lions at the 64th International Festival of Creativity. The wins include one Grand Prix, eight Gold, 15 Silver and 22 Bronze Lions across 14 Leo Burnett offices.
In the Creative Effectiveness category, Leo Burnett received a Grand Prix for “Van Gogh's Bedrooms,” which marked the network’s fifth Grand Prix Lion in only four years. This campaign, by Leo Burnett Chicago for the Art Institute of Chicago, joined the ranks of previous network winners “Justino,” “#LikeAGirl,” “Intimate Words” and “CANCERTWEETS.”
The network nabbed two additional Lions during the last ceremonies on Saturday in the Film category. Chicago picked up another Silver Lion in Film Craft for Samsung’s “The Ostrich” and Leo Burnett Madrid took home a Bronze for the Spanish Lottery’s “Justino” campaign.
Chicago once again topped the award count this year in the network with 15 total Lions. Additionally, the office’s “The Ostrich” campaign for Samsung was the most awarded campaign with three Gold, two Silver and two Bronze Lions across Film, Film Craft, Cyber and Entertainment.
Leo Burnett Melbourne’s “Reword” campaign for Headspace also did exceptionally well, nabbing two Gold, one Silver and three Bronze Lions. Additionally, Beirut’s #Undress522 campaign and Chicago’s “Your Name Saves” work both received five Lions each.
Congratulations to these 14 offices for their success at Cannes: Chicago, Melbourne, Toronto, Mumbai, Sydney, Beirut, Madrid, Dubai, London, Milan, Frankfurt, Tel Aviv, Mexico City and New York.
