The Dubai Lynx Festival of Creativity came to a close on the evening of March 13 with an award ceremony that revealed the winners of this year’s edition. The creative community gathered at the Madinat Jumeirah to honour the very best creativity from the MENA region. Philip Thomas, Chairman Cannes Lions and Dubai Lynx said, “The winning work at Dubai Lynx demonstrates creative excellence with a distinct regional tone. From the 2,406 entries received this year, the winners, as well as setting the creative bar for MENA, also achieved some important milestones, including a record year for winning work from Saudi Arabia and a first-ever shortlisted entry from Iraq.” Themes emerging from this year’s winners included: using cultural artistic traditions and local artists to bridge content and context; harnessing the power of culture to amplify the impact of the campaign and an increase in brands attempting to become more meaningful for people and demonstrate that they care about their customer’s lives, global injustices and the future of the planet.
