Yes we Cannes!
Our work for the Federation for Internet Alerts (FIA) continues to earn honors throughout the advertising community, this time at the industry’s most prestigious award show—the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity.
FIA’s “Around the World in 200 Milliseconds” was one of 39 entries to be shortlisted in the Innovation Lions this year, a category that “celebrate[s] pioneering technological creativity … solutions that fulfill an unaddressed consumer need or deliver a product, service or brand message in a newly-invented way.”
It's the second honor the work has earned in recent months as, in addition to Cannes, it won a 2016 People's Voice Webby Award for Advertising & Media for Public Service & Activism. And in March, FIA's "Amber Could Have Been Saved" was awarded a in the Cause Partnership category.
