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.
