With a record haul of Lions under his (and his company’s) belt after this year’s Cannes accolades were dished out, Colenso BBDO executive creative director, handyman of the land and Titanium and Integrated Lions juror Nick Worthington is sitting pretty. And in this clip, he’s also sitting with Our Maan in Cannes in a loud French restaurant.

Colenso BBDO will be hoping that the 10-man Cannes Lions jury will perform a feat of advertising alchemy and turn their ‘Yellow Chocolate’ campaign for Yellow Pages into a Titanium Lion after it was named on the Titanium and Integrated Lions Shortlist at the 2010 Cannes Lions Advertising Festival.
Colenso BBDO’s award-winning work for the New Zealand Book Council has been shortlisted in the Film and Film Craft categories at the 2010 Cannes Lions Advertising Festival. Clearly not content to rest on their laurels, or indeed these other laurels here, Colenso has been shortlisted in the Sound Design and Animation sections of the Film Craft Category, whilst also making the cut in the Public Awareness Messages section of the Film Category.
"And then she attacked me"
As day four of the Cannes Lions festival draws to a close, it’s time to wipe away the winners announcements, put aside the insights, leave behind the learnings and concentrate instead on the one thing that binds us all together: celebrities.
Alt Group may need to call in structural engineers to reinforce the mantelpiece in their Ponsonby office: the design superstars, who have taken home more than 50 international design awards in the last few years, can now add a Cannes Gold Lion to the list.
Further shortlists have been announced for the Design Lions and Cyber Lions categories, with spokesperson and Professor of Listology at Cannes University, Dr Jean Luc Baguette saying the announcement of the contenders has significantly reduced the danger of passers-by being crushed by debris falling from the shortlist mountain. Helping minimise the peril to the general public are Alt Group and Colenso BBDO, both shortlisted for Design Lions. Colenso was shortlisted twice in the Cyber Category, with TBWA\Tequila\Digital\Shift and Tribal DDB receiving single nods.
DDB and Liquid Studios hit it for six at Cannes last night, taking home six Cannes Lions from six finalist placings for their Arts Channel radio campaign for Sky Television. And Yellow has yet again turned to gold for Colenso.
