CANNES, France, June 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Leo Burnett Worldwide kicked off day two of the 2013 Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity by breaking its overall shortlist record with 193 nominations, compared to 173 total shortlisted campaigns in 2012. The network also added four gold, four silver and ten bronze awards to the tally at tonight's Media, Mobile, Innovation and Outdoor ceremony, bringing the overall total to 28 Cannes Lions. Eight global offices, including Chicago, Colombo, Dubai, Frankfurt, Moscow, Sao Paulo, Sydney and Zurich, contributed to the overall network performance.
"From North America to Europe to Australia and India, all four corners of the globe represented Leo Burnett Worldwide tonight and I couldn't be more proud," said Mark Tutssel, Chief Creative Officer for Leo Burnett Worldwide. "Leo Burnett Worldwide made their way to the stage four times tonight at the Palais des Festivals to pick up four more highly prestigious Gold Cannes Lions in Outdoor and Media."
Vitoria F.C. soccer club's "My Blood is Red & Black," created by Leo Burnett Tailor Made (Sao Paulo) and Leo Burnett Sydney and Chicago's "Small World Machines" campaign for Coca-Cola each have three gold Lions at the close of day two.
"Small World Machines" won gold in the "Media: Best Use of Special Events and Stunt/Live Advertising" category as well as two silver Lions in both "Outdoor: Drinks Campaign" and "Outdoor: Stunts and Live Advertising" categories. In total, the campaign has won an impressive six Lions. Meanwhile, Leo Burnett Tailor Made was also recognized in the Outdoor category with a Gold Lion in the "Stunts and Live Advertising" sector for the agency's "My Blood is Red and Black" campaign.
Allstate's "Save 11" campaign, created by Leo Burnett Chicago, also won a Gold Lion in "Media: Financial Products & Services." The effort introduced a law to encourage safe driving amongst teenagers by limiting nighttime driving, reducing in-car distractions, restricting the number of friends allowed in vehicles and increasing the amount of training time required for teens to get their license.
