An excellent Cannes for APA members

Posted in News, on June 23, 2014

No, we are not just referring to the energy APA members put into partying and networking on the French Rivera but the haul of prizes at Cannes Lions.

Special congratulations to Outsider and James Rouse, for their Grand Prix winning commercial for Harvey Nichols and Adam&EveDDB. Remarkably, that is the seventh time in ten years that an APA member has won the Grand Prix – the award for the best commercial of the year anywhere in the world

Congratulations to on Cannes Lions Golds for Outsider for Marmite and in Film Craft to Gorgeous, Blink and Stink and to the post, editing and music and sound design companies that worked on those too; MPC, Framestore, Work Post, The Mill, Final Cut, Wave Studios and Trim.

There was considerable success in winning Silver and Bronze Lions too and you can see the whole list here.

Our CFPE Young Directors Award delivered great success for APA members again too- in fact winning a greater share of the prizes on offer than ever.

The Special Jury Award and the Audience Award both went to Kibwe Tavares from Nexus for his short film Johah.

You can see the list of YDA winners here.
