Cannes Lions

This in­ter­na­tional fes­ti­val of cre­ativ­ity has been go­ing since 1954 and this year drew 41,170 en­tries in 24 cat­e­gories. Con­tro­versy is rarely far from Cannes, and the de­ci­sion of Publi­cis Groupe boss Arthur Sadoun to ban his agen­cies from at­tend­ing next year has got tongues wag­ging.

Mar­ket­ing So­ci­ety Ex­cel­lence

De­signed to “set the stan­dard for ex­cel­lence in mar­ket­ing”, these awards are not for the faint-hearted, re­quir­ing en­try sub­mis­sions of 2,000 words. Win­ning case stud­ies are pub­lished and some win­ners are in­vited to present at a “best-prac­tice show­case event”.

Mar­ket­ing New Think­ing

Cam­paign’s lat­est awards ini­tia­tive, in as­so­ci­a­tion with Sky Me­dia, is all about mar­ket­ing in­no­va­tion and “mak­ing brands fit for the fu­ture”. The judges gather to­gether later this month – and I’m look­ing for­ward to be­ing one of them!

APG Cre­ative Strat­egy

The theme for the Ac­count Plan­ning Group’s 2017 awards is “trans­for­ma­tional think­ing”, which it claims is the “prod­uct of great plan­ning and strat­egy”. To win big, en­trants will have to demon­strate a novel ap­proach or prove that their work had a “trans­for­ma­tional ef­fect”.
