SA Cannes Lions Final Day Winners–Film, Film Craft

So another years Cannes Lions festival of Creativity comes to close, and on the last awards night SA won again. All in all a great year for South African agencies with Ogilvy Johannesburg, Ogilvy Cape Town, TBWA\Hunt\Lascaris, Y&R South Africa, FCB South Africa, Joe Public, Net#work BBDO Johannesburg, and M&C Saatchi Abel Cape Town all picking up Lions.
We will share the overall agency standing shortly, but for now enjoy the two pieces of SA work that picked up lions from the final night in Cannes.

Winning work for Film Lions
1 x Bronze Film Lion for Ogilvy Johannesburg // Topsy Foundation – Kevin
Subsequent to the making of the ‘Kevin’ ad, the Topsy Foundation has redefined itself as an organisation, and is no longer involved in the treatment of HIV/AIDS. Therefore we will not feature a link to the ad as it was a donation appeal. They are in the process of donating the ad to another brand, when that is complete we will re-upload the work.Topsy’s new focus is on the care of orphans and child-headed households arising in these HIV/AIDS affected communities. To help their new cause, visit www.topsy.org.za.

Winning work for Film Craft Lions
1 x Bronze Film Craft Lion for Net#work BBDO Johannesburg // Coronation fund Managers – Doctor
