Mindshare wins three Golds across more categories than any other media agency
27 June, 2011
— Mindshare went beyond media this year, scooping up a total of three Gold, two Silver and one Bronze Lion across Cyber, Titanium and Integrated, Media and Outdoor categories at the Cannes Lions Advertising Festival. The accolades further demonstrate both the agency’s quality and breadth of work.
As Nike’s global media partner, Mindshare was part of the global communications team that won a Gold Lion for the “Write the Future” campaign in the Titanium and Integrated Lion category. The collaboration, which included Wieden + Kennedy Amsterdam, AKQA and Razorfish, also won a Gold Cyber Lion. The carefully synchronised global strategy and the power of the network led to the campaign being the most viral video on the planet in 2010.
Mindshare Tunisia was credited for work on Brand Collective’s campaign “June 16th 2014,” which picked up a Gold Media Lion. A Silver Lion went to Mindshare Turkey for its unique Koc Group campaign, which saw the agency break new ground with a live pitch on Turkey’s Got Talent final. As the credited media partner for LG Electronic’s “Washing Tunnel” campaign, Mindshare South Africa also scooped up a Silver Lion in the Media Lions category.
Mindshare UK won its first Bronze Outdoor Lion for Lynx Angel Ambush by creating an augmented reality digital outdoor campaign to bring to life the seductive effect of Lynx Excite, the fragrance so tempting “even angels will fall.”
CEO Mindshare Worldwide Dominic Proctor said, “In a world where integration is the fundamental of modern marketing, we’re thrilled that Mindshare has won three Golds and more awards in more categories than any other media agency.”
Graham Bednash and George Michaelides, Co-Leaders Global Invention, said: “Our performance at Cannes was spectacular. Winning three Gold Lions and winning across such a broad range of categories demonstrates the talent and creativity of the agency.” For further information contact:
