The StopPress Podcast #4: Simon Kemp, Contagious

However you say it, and whatever you think of it, Cannes has become the high water mark of global commercial creativity and pretty much every agency (and, increasingly, every tech company) worth its salt seeks validation through victory at this huge annual festival in the South of France. This year, there were more than 43,000 entries and more than 15,000 attendees, celebrating both the best ideas and the fact that the company is paying for their potentially debauched and very expensive trip. Contagious, which, according to its blurb, helps brands across the globe to achieve the top 1% of marketing creativity, was there, as it is every year, and Simon Kemp, the head of its consulting division Insider in the Asia Pacific region, looked at some of the themes linking the award-winning campaigns. He visited recently as a guest of FCB and he sat down with Ben Fahy, the publisher and editorial director of StopPress and NZ Marketing, to discuss the impact of technology, advertising as a fashion show, the declining impact of creativity, the idea of purpose washing, and plenty more.

Trouble in Cannes: Cindy Gallop calls out James Hurman’s book for sexism

Cannes 2015: gold and grand prix winners in the Cyber category

In the past, much of the emphasis at advertising awards events has been placed on television advertising on account of the fact that this has traditionally been the area that attracts the biggest chunk of ad spend. But as more money shifts to the digital, the categories that have a digital element are attracting more attention. One such area is the cyber Lions category, which encompasses branded online, digital, and technological communications. StopPress looks at the gold and grand prix winners in this category.

The Cannes case study template

There were over 40,000 entries to the Cannes Lions this year, and while there is currently much excitement and hedonism in the South of France, there also seems to be a growing sense of cynicism about the importance placed on the awards, with Tom Goodwin's article in the Guardian questioning the industry's reality distortion field and inward-looking nature. And for the cynics who think these clever ideas on display are all a bunch of arse that are unlikely to solve real business problems, you'll probably enjoy the Grand Prix Generator.
