New Zealand scored Gold, Silver and Bronze Lions at the Cannes Press Lions last night.
Gold went to Publicis Mojo Auckland for its Ketchup Sachet for Campaign Against Landmines, an ad that was rejected by the AXIS Awards. Saatchi & Saatchi, Auckland won a Silver Lion for its World Wildlife Fund campaign (pictured) as well as Bronze for Bose.
Saatchi & Saatchi Sydney won a Silver Lion for their Olay campaign. Bronze went to Clemenger BBDO, Sydney for its Legends Condoms campaign and to Publicis Mojo Sydney for its Toyota ‘Flip’ ad.
To top off the Antipodean celebrations, Aussie/Kiwi expat Leo Premutico, now based in New York, picked up his third Gold Lion this week for his 42Below work for Saatchi & Saatchi, New York.

that WWF ad was also thrown out of Axis. Shows you how bullshit Axis really is.

I hear that the ketchup sachet got thrown out of the DM jury at Cannes because it ran in Blood Magazine, yet the 'insert' that ran in the magazine that picked up teh Gold Lion looks as scammy as anything. Might it too have been Blood Magazine I wonder? Anyway, regardless, it's great to see ads promoting the danger of landmines in New Zealand. As everyone nows, it's a major problem here.
