Cyber Lions Grand Prix to Tweets and Utility App

This year, two campaigns took home the Cyber Lions Grand Prix.

Sweden - Curators of Sweden by VOLONTAIRE in Stockholm have some fancy new metal to show off. The post about the world's most democratic twitter account has been read over eleven thousand times already, which isn't always a good thing.

Radio Lions Grand Prix winner as annoying as the mosquitos it claims to get rid of?

Radio Lions Grand Prix winner was "Repellent Radio" for Go Outside Magazine by Talent, São Paulo, Brazil.

The #CannesLions cyber shortlist adland picks. Who will win tomorrow?

What will win in Cyber? That's always the toughest category you know, and the one with the most fun entries. :) Let have a look at a few.

Take this lollipop is on the shortlist. Yes, the creepy stalker who wil stalk your facebook photos from a dusty hideout complete with tricycle. Creeepy. Directed by Jason Zada, Created by TOOL Santa Monica, produced by Brian Latt, Oliver Fuselier and Dustin Callif. Developed by Jason Nickel. It's pretty cool.

Need to cool down in Cannes? Leo Cornett the ice-cream van to the rescue. #CannesLions

Ben & Milo from Leo Burnett London actually drove from west Kennes to Cannes.... in an ice cream van. Their tumblr LeoCornett.tumblr.com keeps up with their whereabouts and last night they pulled in to the Majestic Hotel corner of the Croisette and delivered ice-cream to the tired adgeeks found wandering stumbling between the Palais and the bars. Follow them on twitter too @leocornett and you'll know where they may strike next. Just don't tell Cannes security, apparently they don't fancy random ice-cream trucks pulling in and delivering soft cones of joy to people unannounced.

Cannes Lions has its own hashtag page. #CannesLions

It's the first time in three years running that I am not at the Cannes Lions Festival, and wouldn't you know it, this year they finally get their own official hashtag page #CannesLions.

Dan Wieden Honoured With Lion of St Mark - Cannes Lions 2012

Dan Wieden Honoured With Lion of St Mark

First Sir John Hegarty, now Dan Wieden. It's just been announced that the 2012 recipient of the Lion of St. Mark will be Dan Wieden, Co-Founder and Global Executive Creative Director of Wieden+Kennedy. Dan Wieden commenting on the award said:

"This is a pretty big honour. To be honest, I've always identified with that renown military leader, of whom it was said, his men would follow him anywhere. Mainly, out of curiosity."

You either Cannes or you Cannt. I can't do either *sob*

Yes, it's time for another year of Cannt - the London ad getogether for those who can't go to Cannes. June 18th – 22nd the Cannt festival will showcase and reward the best creative talent in the UK, who are still stuck in the UK instead of drinking that pink Evian in the south of France. It's a nice idea, and takes care to recreate the hobnobbing and creative gossiping over cool drinks in the summer heat, except in London far from sandy beaches. I'd go if I were in London.

CANNT 2012 is coming 18th-22rd June.
Once again we will be taking over venues in London to bring a little of the Cannes experience to those not lucky enough to go.
Because you either Cannes or you CANNT.
