Cannes 2014: five Kiwi agencies in contention for Outdoor Lions

Five Kiwi entries from five different agencies have made it through to the shortlist stage in the outdoor category at Cannes this year, with FCB, Whybin\TBWA, DDB, Saatchi & Saatchi/ApolloNation and Colenso BBDO all still in contention for Lions.

For the most part the shortlistings were a case of the usual suspects, in the sense that only Whybin\TBWA's 'Talk like a rugby pro' campaign had not been shortlisted in any other categories thus far.

The entries from the other agencies are all in contention for Lions in other categories, and Saatchi & Saatchi's 'Catch a Million' campaign for Tui has already won a gold in the PR category.

Here are the shortlisted entries:

Whybin\TBWA: 'Talk like a Rugby Pro' campaign for APN


FCB: 'Bottled Walkman' campaign for Sony


DDB: '#BringDownTheKing' campaign for Sky TV's Game of Thrones

Saatchi & Saatchi New Zealand/ApolloNation: 'Tui Catch a Million' campaign for DB Breweries

Colenso BBDO Auckland: 'The Smart Phone Line' for Samsung

Whittaker's divides the court of public opinion – but all for a good cause

On Monday, Whittaker’s launched its latest novelty chocolate-lolly mash up with a chocolatey answer to retro bakesale treat coconut ice. The Coconut Ice Surprise chocolate has a twist though, 20c from each block goes to Plunket – a charity which New Zealanders agree is a worthy cause. However, to relate the chocolate to the charity, Whittaker's has built the campaign around baby gender reveal parties, causing a backlash from the public who argue gender norms have expanded beyond blue for boys and pink for girls.
