Cannes Lions withdraws 2 Lions won by Moma Propaganda Bazil

Advertising, Cannes Lions

Cannes Lions festival decided, following discussions with Moma Propaganda Sao Paulo (Brazil), to withdraw both the Silver Lion won in the Press category and the Bronze Lion won in Outdoor for the Kia Motors air conditioning dual zone campaign “Teacher” and “Princess”.

Cannes Lions rules state clearly that if requested, proof must be provided that campaigns ran and were legitimately created for a fee-paying client. Despite many conversations, Moma Propaganda have not provided the proof we require and therefore the Lions have been withdrawn.
