With the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity 2018 just about a month away, Campaign India returns with its 'Cannes Contender' series.
The premise is:
How much time really does a Cannes juror get to understand a case or piece of work s/he hasn't come across before?
Too little. It's up to us to help them get acquainted with the good work prior. We present here entries from Indian/South Asian agencies that their creators believe will be in contention for Lions at the 2018 International Festival of Creativity, Cannes.
FCB India has three such entries.

The Times of India’s campaign- #NoConditionsApply was launched during Durga Pooja in September 2017, extending TOI’s #NoConditionApply to call for inclusive celebrations and celebrating tradition without division.
2.Fearless Kota - Horlicks

Amul 90% Dark - Amul
