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.

This year, Colenso BBDO won a silver lion in this category for its 'Reduce speed dial' campaign for VW, making it the only Kiwi winner in this category. And while there were no gold or grand prix winners from this side of the world, it is interesting to look at which creative pieces were regarded as the standout examples over the course of the last year.

'Gisele Bündchen – I will what I want' for Under Armour by Droga 5
