While it was only my second year at Cannes, I was struck by the increasing number of clients not only just touching down at Cannes, but really engaging with the Festival by attending and speaking in seminars, and generally soaking up all that Cannes has to offer by way of creative inspiration, networking and celebrating [...]
Whilst the festival continues until tomorrow, it’s the end of our week here today. We’ve enjoyed talking to marketers from some of the largest companies in the world and hope you’ve enjoyed watching them.
Over the coming weeks we’ll be pawing through all the footage that didn’t make it into our 4 minute episodes to bring [...]
Earlier in the week, Hill & Knowlton CEO and Cannes Lions 2010 PR jury president Paul Taaffe called on the festival organisers to change its name to recognise the wide variety of marketing disciplines represented.

Whilst we’ve been busy editing the highlights of the whole week, here’s a short episode of Cannes Eye TV featuring interviews with Campaign’s Claire Beale and Jim Stengel, who is hosting a seminar on Friday called The Burning Question.

Socialising plays a big part in the Cannes Lions festival schedule. So, following his call to arms at yesterday’s seminar, Improv Everywhere’s Charlie Todd last night briefed what must have been 200-250 delegates on their improv mission for the night: to create the most exclusive party in the whole of Cannes.
And create they did. And [...]
As we near the end of our second day at the Cannes Lions, we thought it would be nice to hear from the delegates for a change so we headed out onto the Croisette to get a few sounds bites. Earlier we also caught up with Jess Greenwood from Contagious to understand what they were [...]
If you’re not in Cannes for the Cannes Lions this week (and even if you are), here are the edited highlights of the Hill & Knowlton/Improv Everywhere seminar held at 11am this morning. Now we’re off to create our own scene of chaos and joy with the rest of the delegates here on the Croisette.
In a few minutes, the award shows kick off here at the Cannes Lions Advertising Festival. In this second year that PR Lions are included, those entries increased by 32%. But I wondered how that stacked up. So I made this bar chart showing volume of entries for PR compared to the most established categories.
