Colenso feels the roar with another Cannes Gold

Slowly but surely New Zealand’s Cannes tally continues to rise with the announcement of the Outdoor category winners. Eight Kiwi entries made the shortlist of 588, with three taking home awards. First hat tip goes to Colenso BBDO for taking out New Zealand’s only Gold in the category, awarded for its ‘Sorry about the Twigs’, folks‘ campaign for Monteith’s Crushed Cider, adding to the gold, silver and bronze the campaign picked up in the Promo & Activation category. The agency’s ‘Skate Pinball’ campaign for Mountain Dew also nabbed a Bronze Lion.

Elsewhere Publicis Mojo took home its first Lion of the competition, a Silver one for its Greenpeace ‘Oil on Canvas’ campaign.

Mercedes Benz’s ‘The Invisible Drive’ campaign, created by the folks at Hamburg’s Jung von Matt, and Ogilvy Shanghai’s ‘#Coke Hands’ campaign walked away with the two Outdoor Grand Prixs of the night.
