Why India’s outing at Cannes Lions 2018 was historic

Even though India had won the maximum 40 Lions in 2017, this year’s tally can’t be compared with previous years considering the massive cut in competition and subcategories

Armed with two Grand Prix for the first time in a year and the Lion of St. Mark award to brothers Piyush and Prasoon Pandey, India’s outing at Cannes Lions in 2018 was historic.

The Indian metal tally stood at 21 with a Grand Prix in Creative Effectiveness, a Lions Health Grand Prix for Good, four Gold, six Silver and nine Bronze Lions.

Though India’s performance was best in 2017 with 40 Lions, this year’s tally cannot be compared with any previous year considering the massive cut in competition and subcategories.

Making India proud at Cannes Lions 2018 were Ogilvy India with a Grand Prix in Creative Effectiveness for ITC’s Savlon Healthy Hands Chalksticks and TBWA\India with a Lions Health Grand Prix for Good for ‘Blink to Read’ solution.

FCB India won two Gold and two Bronze Lions for TOI’s ‘Sindoor Khela - No Conditions Apply’. On the other hand, McCann India won the first Creative eCommerce Gold for the country for Paytm’s Sweet Change campaign.
