As the official representatives of the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity in the UAE, Motivate Media Group and Motivate Val Morgan recently concluded the distribution of Lions won by UAE at this year’s Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity.
This year witnessed UAE bring home 7 Lions – the region’s first Grand Prix and six Bronze Lions, all of which were won by Impact BBDO Dubai.
Of the 1,252 entries from 62 countries competing in the Print & Publishing Lions category (Communication Track) where 32 Lions were awarded – 1 Grand Prix, 6 Gold, 7 Silver and 18 Bronze Lions, Impact BBDO Dubai snatched the Grand Prix for ‘The Blank Edition’, which saw the agency work with leading Arabic-language daily newspaper An-Nahar to print an entirely blank edition – calling on Lebanese citizens to use the space to send a message to the stalled government.
Ian Fairservice – Managing Partner and Group Editor in Chief at Motivate Media Group, and Avinash Udeshi – Chief Operating Officer at Motivate Val Morgan, paid Dani Richa – Chairman & CEO of BBDO Middle East, Africa & Pakistan, and his team a visit on Wednesday 9th October 2019 to hand over the Lions won by their agency at this year’s Cannes Lions Festival which concluded in June 2019.
We at Motivate Media Group and Motivate Val Morgan warmly congratulate Impact BBDO Dubai and look forward to UAE winning many more Lions at next year’s Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity.
