Advertising, Cannes Lions

Organic, Contagious, The Moth and Google, to bring “Worst say in advertising” storyslam to Cannes , with celebrated creatives and industry luminaries to share their tales of rock bottom on the job.

In center there will be the bad days, when ideas fell flat, clients went ballistic, the shoot turned dangerous. At this year’s Cannes Lions, digital marketing agency Organic is inviting guests to share the worst of the worst at its first- ever “Worst Day in Advertising” StorySlam event in Cannes.

After two successful years sponsoring the StorySLAM event during New York’s Advertising Week, Organic is teaming with Contagious Magazine, The Moth and Google to bring the event to the beach at this year’s Cannes Lions Festival in France, on June 21st, at Google’s Creative Sandbox.

In the past, participants have shared stories of personal and professional humiliation, how clients were won and lost, and how their careers hit a low – from the funny to the profane to the heartbreaking, and all in five minutes or less. Find highlights from some of the past events here.
