First-Ever Cannes Lion for a Slovak Agency!

JL_cannes_lions_pic_MELVIN_955x955px

So it finally happened. Slovakia won a Lion on Cannes International Festival of Creativity! And since this is our website, it’s kind of obvious that we won it.
Our Lion has a fur of bronze and we’ve put it into resistant Samsonite baggage, sold by Samdex company.

We’ve scored on world’s biggest event of advertisement in the competition of 40.000 commercials from 96 countries. We were even the only country from the eastern Europe to win a Lion in the difficult Film category.

The president of the Film jury was Tor Myhren, creative chief of Grey Worldwide. He was obviously fond of our work, because he said: “Samsonite campaign brought a unique way of telling story about luggage. And it was more than anything the human insight in those commercials, so it was perfect.”

Our executive director Valér Hlobil also had something to say on the topic: “To win a Lion is equally difficult as if a Slovak movie won an Oscar. Our success proves that the Slovak advertisement can be competitive on the world level. There is hope that we will be able to inspire other Slovak clients and agencies and together we will raise the creativity of the Slovak advertisement to the level that will be entertaining for the people. So people choose rather to enjoy it, not try to avoid it. I’m sure that together we are strong enough to bring some more Lions to Slovakia next year.”

We find this kind of summer a trully happy one. :)
