Cannes Lions Tuesday Night: Awards and Parties

opening_gala_cannes_2012.jpeg

As Tuesday in Cannes ended, Google scooped up the inaugural Mobile Grand Prix for its re-imagined Coke Hilltop campaign which "mobilized" the sentiment of the original campaign and made it possible for people to actually "buy the world a Coke." In other Tuesday night awards and party news:

- BBH won the Creative Effectiveness Grand Prix for its Axe Fallen Angels work.

- Duval Guillame was (deservedly so) crowned Media Agency of the year.

- The ubiquitous Arnold bike made its way to the Havas cafe.

- As always, the food at the Opening Gala was stellar but, again, as always, the lines were miserably long. It's really just best to skip the food line and just drink.

- And not to be confused with the Dutch Young Creatives, the Young Lions party, sort of an anti-Gala event, rocked La Croisette Tuesday night as well.
