Cannes: Leo Burnett has bagged India’s second Gold on Day 3 of Cannes Lions 2024. 

Its campaign ‘Turf Finder’ for PepsiCo’s Gatorade earned a Gold in the Creative Data category. 

 

Turf Finder’ initiative is aimed at promoting the love and will for playing sports, amidst the hustle and bustle of India's metropolitan areas. Addressing the scarcity of recreational space in urban India, Gatorade's ‘Turf Finder’ initiative aims to find places to play, wherever and whenever space permits in the city. Utilising historical maps data, Gatorade will pinpoint locations, including vacant parking lots or empty streets, and transform them into accessible playing areas for citizens across India’s metropolitan cities. 

"The Gatorade Turf Finder campaign is everything that Leo Burnett believes in – Using new age technology and data to solve ‘real’ problems and make ‘real’ impact. And we are so proud that our work and vision are resonating with the jury at Cannes as well winning us this Gold for Creative Data. We are thankful for our partnership with PepsiCo who have helped give this campaign the scale it deserves. Epic Brands Epic work.” Rajdeepak Das CCO Publicis Groupe South Asia and Chairman Leo Burnett South Asia. 

India also earned two silvers on Day Three of Cannes Lions 2024.
