With its haul of 16 gongs (one gold, six silver and nine bronze), Colenso BBDO was the standout Kiwi performer at the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity. The agency’s chief executive Nick Garrett was on the ground in the South of France and he recently got in touch to share his thoughts on the proceedings. And while he was pleased with the tally that Colenso accumulated over the course of the event, he says that the general consensus among attendees was that this was far from being a vintage edition of the awards event.

The fifth and final awards ceremony for the 62nd Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity 2015 concluded in the weekend with Clemenger BBDO and Cirkus Auckland taking home a gold and a bronze.
Each day in Cannes brings fresh batch of awards winners—and inevitable rosé-induced hangovers—as gongs in the various categories are distributed to the agencies that have over the course of the last year produced the best creative efforts. And this continued overnight as the winners in the Outdoor, PR, Media, Creative Effectiveness and Glass Lions categories were announced. This time, Colenso, DDB and FCB were among the winners.
