Havas is roaring at Cannes!

Havas is roaring!

Our agencies had a fantastic performance last week at the 65th edition of the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity.

15 of our agencies were awarded a grand total of 47 Lions – 3 Grand Prix, 5 Gold, 18 Silver and 21 Bronze! This represents a 15% increase of Lions for Havas Group compared to 2017 despite that the number of Lions awarded overall was reduced by 20% by the organisers!

Our fantastic Australian agency Host/Havas stole the show with 9 Lions including 3 Grand Prix for the Palau Pledge campaign for Palau Legacy Project. Palau Pledge was the only campaign to win 3 Grand Prix at Cannes this year and we are over the moon for the team.

BETC Paris was the most awarded French agency with 15 Lions overall: 2 Gold, 2 Silver and 6 Bronze for the brilliant Save Our Species campaign for Lacoste. Congrats!

A special mention to Havas Lynx for being named Healthcare Agency of the Year (and winning 3 Lions) and to Havas Health & You for being ranked second Healthcare Network of the Year.

Warm congratulations to all our other winning agencies: Arnold Boston, BETC/Havas Sao Paulo, Havas Buenos Aires, Havas Colombia, Havas Düsseldorf, Havas Johannesburg, Havas New York, Havas Shanghai, Havas Media Barcelona, Havas Media London, One Green Bean and Rosapark.

All of this winning work is perfectly in line with our mission to make brands meaningful.

Creativity can never be replaced as the key to brilliant and effective advertising and must continue to remain at the centre of all our activities.

Congratulations once again to all our winners!

I’d now like to invite you to take the time to discover and enjoy our award-winning campaigns below.
