Lion and Wine for Colenso, as mobile winners announced

Colenso BBDO’s ‘The Wine is over’ campaign for DB Export Dry has already taken a few local awards, including the most recent Glossie, and it was the only Kiwi winner at the Press Lions at Cannes last night, with ‘The Wine List‘ winning a silver for best copywriting.

Benetton claimed the Press grand prix for its controversial Unhate campaign (according to Mumbrella, the image of the Pope and the Imam kissing wasn’t included in the entry). And Australia picked up ten gongs.

Mobile, a new category for 2012, received 965 entries from 47 countries. From 99 shortlisted entries, 11 went on to win gold, 14 silver and 28 bronze.

Grow Interactive Norfolk/Johannes Leonardo New York took home the first ever mobile grand prix for its ‘Hilltop Re-imagined for Coca-Cola’, which was part of the Google Rebrief project.

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.
