Indian entrants ended their Cannes Lions 2013 campaign with 33 Lions, not including the Silver for ‘Help a child reach 5’ for Unilever entered by Lowe Worldwide London. The metal haul may pale in comparison to Ogilvy Brazil’s tally or that of a single piece of work ‘Dumb Ways to Die’, but compared to the metals won in 2012 (14), 2011 (24) and 2010 (17), India’s hunt has been more successful this year.
Among Indian agencies, Taproot ended with six Lions, four of them Gold. McCann Worldgroup notched up two Gold and two Bronze Lions. By points, Ogilvy & Mather India topped Indian agencies with Ogilvy & Mather with its 10 Lions, including a Gold, two Silver and seven Bronzes. The fourth Indian entrant to win a Gold Lion was Grey Worldwide, which also won two Bronzes.
