Philip Thomas, Chairman, Cannes Lions commented: “Cannes Lions has become such a lightning-rod moment for the industry, when hundreds of speeches are given, thousands of pieces of work are judged, and numerous announcements made, that synthesizing it all is not only important, but essential. The Digital Doggy Bag allows attendees to share the best of the five-day content program with their teams across the globe after the event and makes sense of what can be an overwhelming experience. We’re excited to now make these learnings available to all. There’s no doubt it will add immensely to everyone’s understanding of where our industry is, right here, right now.”
Serving as one of the leading voices at the 66th annual Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity, Accenture Interactive showcased a broad and rich tapestry of thinking and ideas across its creative capabilities, earning a total of 40 Lions* spanning 12 categories, more than a fivefold increase from last year’s seven. Award wins included two Grands Prix in Film Craft and Film Lions for the thought-provoking and powerful campaign ‘The Truth is Worth It’ for The New York Times. Created by newly acquired creative agency, Droga5, the campaign masterfully highlights the importance of investigative reporting by revealing the rigor and danger behind bringing these stories to life.
“As the Experience Agency, our banner year for Cannes Lions represents a long-term strategic investment we’ve made in growing our creative capabilities, as part of our overall experience proposition. This year marked our most robust presence at the Festival to date, and we are humbled by how well-received we were by the industry,” said Brian Whipple, CEO for Accenture Interactive. “The Digital Doggy Bag is our way of giving back by enhancing everyone’s experience of the event and providing useful insights and lasting memories they can share with their colleagues upon their return.”
The Experience Agency rounded out its presence at the 2019 Festival by hosting a series of events and discussions throughout the week including ten main stage sessions and driving the conversation on topics such as the future of the agency landscape, brand purpose, sustainability, diversity and inclusion.
