2019 Dubai Lynx Award Winners Revealed

PRESS RELEASE

13 March 2019 – The Dubai Lynx Awards Ceremony, held this evening, brought the 2019 Festival to a close with the winners of the 18 Lynx Awards categories being announced. The creative community gathered at the Madinat Jumeirah to honour the very best creativity from the MENA region this year.

In addition to the winners across all marketing communications categories, Special Awards were also presented for the Network of the Year, Agency of the Year, Independent Agency of the Year, Media Network of the Year, Golden Palm Award, Advertising Person of the Year and Advertiser of the Year.

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.

The Young Lynx and Student competition winners were also honoured on stage, while MBC Group presented a special award to Global TV personality Steve Harvey in recognition of his achievements and services to broadcasting.

The 2019 Dubai Lynx Grand Prix winners are:

Brand Experience & Activation Grand Prix

TBWA\RAAD, Dubai, UAE, ‘OMO Tag’, Unilever Lebanon

Brand Experience & Activation Jury President, Alan Kelly, Executive Creative Director, Rothco Accenture Interactive commented that his Jury loved this work from the start. “It is so simple and so different. It’s a great activation from the ‘Dirt is good’ stable and goes to show that size doesn’t matter when it comes to great ideas”

Creative Effectiveness Grand Prix 

TBWA\RAAD, Dubai, UAE, ‘Slow Trends’, Connect

Creative Effectiveness Jury President, Amanda Fève, Partner, Chief Strategy Officer, Anomaly Amsterdam, The Netherlands said, “This classic David and Goliath story reminds us that it’s not the size of the budget, but the quality of thinking and craft that goes into it, that determines a campaign’s impact. Sharp use of data and social listening helped uncover a genuine cultural insight, which not only created entertaining content, but drove tangible commercial results. Truly effective campaigns must do more than earn attention and engagement, they must change attitudes and behaviours. ‘Slow Trends’ did both, putting smiles on our faces and bringing in new subscribers for ‘Connect.”

Design Grand Prix 

BBDO Pakistan / Impact BBDO, Dubai, ‘Truck Art Childfinder’, Berger Paints

Digital Grand Prix 

TBWA\Istanbul, Turkey, ‘Hailstorm in Istanbul’, IKEA

Digital Jury President, Alan Kelly, Executive Creative Director, Rothco Accenture Interactive, commented, “This campaign for IKEA is possibly the best ‘real-time response’ idea any of us on the Jury had ever seen.”

Direct Grand Prix 

BBDO Pakistan / Impact BBDO, Dubai, ‘Truck Art Childfinder’, Berger Paints

Entertainment Grand Prix 

Kijamii, Cairo, Egypt, ‘The Sweet Revenge’, Président Cheese Egypt

Entertainment Jury President, Alexandra Ouzilleau, Global Head of Entertainment Partnerships, Havas Group, Global commenting on this Grand Prix winner said, “What we found really interesting with the Grand Prix is that it tapped into the cultural context at the perfect moment in a very smart and fun way which makes the brand’s intersection with Entertainment look very authentic.”

Film Grand Prix 

Leo Burnett Dubai, UAE for campaign ‘Fire’, ‘Fall’ and ‘Crash’, du Telco

Film Craft Grand Prix 

J. Walter Thompson, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, ‘What are we allowing?’, Saudi Telecom Company

Glass Grand Prix 

J. Walter Thompson, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, ‘Akhou Nora’, Saudi Telecom Company

Glass Jury President, Candace Kuss, Director of Social Media, Hill+Knowlton Strategies, UK, commented, “’Akhou Nora’ celebrated a woman as the hero, rather than defending women as victims. The work also integrated men into the cause, based on an historical fact. STC didn’t just create a TV ad, they integrated internal comms, social and even physical signage. Most of the Glass entries address much needed change. So they are by nature addressing issues that show women and girls as victims. ‘Akhou Nora’ looked into the history of the country to show us a proud and courageous role model.

Grand Prix for Good Grand Prix 

Impact BBDO, Dubai, UAE, ‘Zero Tolerance Ribbon’, 28 Too Many

Healthcare Grand Prix 

The Classic Partnership Advertising, Dubai, UAE, ‘Rx Prescription Stickers’, Dubai Health Authority

Integrated Grand Prix 

Impact BBDO, Dubai, UAE, ‘The Blank Edition’, An-Nahar

Media Grand Prix 

FP7/DXB, Dubai,UAE, ‘Al Umobuwah: Putting “Mum” into “Parenthood”’, Babyshop

Media Jury President Veriça Djurdjevic, Chief Executive Officer, PHD, UK commented, “This campaign went beyond paid media; they created new owned channels, and harnessed the power of earned media, as well as using each of the paid channels creatively. It was a brave strategy for a retailer, but we felt it was a really important campaign: it shows that harnessing a cultural insight and executing it in a truly integrated way can deliver a strong commercial impact in terms of sales results, not just brand warmth uplift.”

Mobile Grand Prix 

Google Dubai, UAE, ‘Qibla Finder’, Google

“The sheer usefulness of this idea made us love this work. We all have apps that end up on page 5 of the home screen of our mobile but this Grand Prix will stay on page 1 ,” said Mobile Jury President Alan Kelly, Executive Creative Director, Rothco Accenture Interactive.

Outdoor Grand Prix 

BBDO Pakistan / Impact BBDO, Dubai,  ‘Truck Art Childfinder’, Berger Paints

Outdoor Jury President, Alan Kelly, Executive Creative Director, Rothco Accenture Interactive, commented, “When you sit in a jury room looking at hundreds of case studies, you can become desensitised to the results sections. But you can’t argue with the result of reuniting three children with their parents. We will be talking about the beautiful ‘Truck Art Childfinder’ idea for many years to come.”

PR Grand Prix 

Impact BBDO, Dubai, UAE, ‘The Blank Edition’, An-Nahar

Commenting on why this piece of work was awarded the Grand Prix, PR Jury President, Candace Kuss, Director of Social Media, Hill+Knowlton Strategies, UK, said, “The jury room immediately responded to this entry. We understand the power of the press to hold politicians to account and to rally citizens to share their voice. A simple execution for a powerful idea and very relevant for the times we live in. This work was very specific to Lebanon, but also addressed a universal issue. Journalism has ever been more important. We need bravery from our news reporters all over the world to uncover the truth.”

Print & Outdoor Craft Grand Prix 

BBDO Pakistan / Impact BBDO, Dubai,, ‘Truck Art Childfinder’, Berger Paints

Speaking on why the Grand Prix was awarded in both Design and Print & Outdoor Craft, Jury President, Guillermo Tragant, Chief Creative Officer, Furia, said, “The ‘Truck Art Child Finder’ was chosen because it was a brilliant, simple, strong idea. It was executed with excellent craft in a manner that respected the local folklore art. But the campaign also elevated the art-form, integrating the product in the most natural way, with purpose and real life changing results for the children and their families.”

La pubblicità fatta bene fa bene.

Se ti stai chiedendo se il tuo lavoro può avere o meno un impatto tangibile sul mondo reale, magari facendo anche qualcosa di buono, ecco una notizia che ti può ispirare.

Ti ricordi il progetto Palau Pledge? Quello che ha vinto il primo Sustainable Development Lions Grand Prix della storia dei Cannes Lions?

Certo che te lo ricordi.

Ecco, leggi qui sotto cosa è successo (così alleni pure un po’ l’inglese):

 

Cannes Lions announces distribution of €323,280 to the NGO behind the Palau Pledge, winner of the inaugural Sustainable Development Lions Grand Prix

07 January 2019 – Cannes Lions today announced that the funds generated from entries into the Sustainable Development Goals Lion will be distributed to the Friends of the Palau National Marine Sanctuary and the Palau Pledge Legacy Team, the client behind the Palau Pledge which won the first SDG Lions Grand Prix at Cannes Lions 2018.

The campaign, which was described by 2018 SDG Lion Jury President Mark Tutssel, Executive Chairman and Global Chief Creative Officer, Leo Burnett Worldwide as “proof positive that the true winner in this category is humankind”, stamped an environmental pledge to the children of Palau into every visitor’s passport. Since its launch in December 2017 over 150,000 people have signed the pledge.

Philip Thomas, Chairman, Cannes Lions said, “We want to help great ideas to scale, and we’re delighted to fund the growth of the Grand Prix-winning Palau Pledge with the proceeds of the entries into the SDG Lions. We believe that creativity can change the world and it’s a privilege to support this initiative and contribute to its efforts to have an even greater impact.”

Introduced with the support of the United Nations, the SDG Lions aim to advance awareness of the Sustainable Development Goals by encouraging the creative industries to focus on harnessing creativity to positively impact the world. In its inaugural year the Lion received 898 entries generating a total of €323,280 in funds, which the Palau Pledge will receive to scale the project and make real change both in Palau and further afield.

The funds donated by Cannes Lions, owned by Ascential plc, will be used to implement Phase Two of the Pledge, focusing on three core areas; a world-first Business Accreditation Programme, a Pledge-focussed STEM Educational Curriculum adjunct for school-aged children and Global leadership to scale the programme beyond the island of Palau. The Palau Legacy Project was founded by Palauan based global communications experts Nanae Singeo, Jennifer Koskelin-Gibbons, Nicolle Fagan and Laura Clarke and is chaired by the First Lady of Palau, Debbie Remengesau.

Palau Legacy Project Co-Founder Laura Clarke said, “These funds are pivotal to the project continuing and we are thrilled to be able to see the Palau Pledge grow and develop. We’ve already seen the local and global impact it can have, with Hawaii and New Zealand introducing similar Pledges and we want to do more to initiate change worldwide. A key element for us as a team is to be able to meet with leaders from countries and organisations all over the world and share the Palau Pledge philosophy.”

Although the 7th smallest nation in the world by GDP and with a population of less than 20,000, Palau is one of world leaders in conservation. The Palau Pledge has brought global exposure to the plight of the children of Palau. Host/Havas, the Sydney agency involved with the programme will continue to monitor and report the impact of the Pledge via a service-design model that will be scalable for other island nations to implement. Seamus Higgins, Executive Creative Director, Host/Havas said, “As an industry, we have the incredible power to shape conversation and behaviour. With this power comes the responsibility to shape a better world for future generations to inherit. We can’t ignore this any longer, and we have to do it at scale and in partnership with business. We are hugely honoured to continue working with the Palau Legacy Project and Palau’s government, who had the bravery to do something no-one else had done, to solve a problem no-one else had solved. Thank you Cannes Lions for putting your money where your mouth is. SDG is a truly meaningful category.”

The SDG Lion is part of the Good Track at Cannes Lions, along with Glass: The Lion for Change, which also donates the funds generated from entries. As part of a commitment to giving back to relevant projects and causes, these funds sit alongside various other Cannes Lions initiatives, including See It Be It, #MoreLikeMe, the Young Lions Competitions and membership of the UN Women’s Unstereotype Alliance.

ROAD to EQUAL


Il Premio Equal, promosso da ADCI, ha esordito lo scorso anno in occasione degli ADCI AWARDS, con il Patrocinio della Camera dei Deputati. 

Il premio si è posto l’obiettivo di premiare clienti e agenzie impegnati nella creazione di immaginari capaci di far evolvere la rappresentazione di genere, oltre gli stereotipi.

Nel corso della prima edizione il Premio Equal è stato conferito alla campagna INDESIT “#doittogheter “ per la capacità di porre l’accento sulla gender inequality domestica, con un investimento organico + che ha aperto un dibattito sull’ineguaglianza della gestione familiare, spesso ingiustamente a carico delle sole donne.

Per il 2018 abbiamo deciso – con voto unanime del Consiglio Direttivo – di allargare i confini del Premio, per fare sì che abbracci il concetto più ampio di discriminazione, sia essa diretta o indiretta.

A partire dal 2018 il Premio Equal coinvolgerà le campagne e i progetti di comunicazione  impegnati nel superamento ogni forma di diversità, che possa comportare una ingiustificata disparità di trattamento e di rappresentazione sui media.

Nella realtà di tutti i giorni assistiamo a discriminazioni determinate da diverse cause: per religione, per razza, per età, per convinzioni personali, per orientamento sessuale.

In aggiunta a quella di genere.

Ecco perché siamo felici di annunciare che il Premio Equal allarga ancora di più i suoi confini per promuovere presso le agenzie creative e i clienti investitori, un senso di responsabilità sempre maggiore verso la cultura dell’uguaglianza. 

Nuovi immaginari, rappresentazioni, linguaggi sempre più evoluti  saranno fattori di cambaimento che- come professionisti-abbiamo il potere e il dovere di promuovere.

Il “Premio Equal” nasce come momento di confronto, dibattito e strumento virtuoso di valorizzazione dell’impegno verso la cultura dell’uguaglianza.

Il 31 Luglio presenteremo il Premio con alcuni relatori di eccezione: sarà l’occasione per salutarci prima delle vacanze estive.

[Stefania Siani, consigliere ADCI]
