Wrath of Cannes Powers into Third Year


And it's crass as ever. (Be sure to watch the Firing Squad videos.)

For the unfortunate ad cogs that won't be making Cannes this year (cannes't!), there's always the Woods Witt Dealy & Sons' Wrath of Cannes.

Unlike last year, when we were shocked it even lasted two events, Wrath of Cannes is full steam ahead for the third: fueled by layoffs, budget cuts, more conservative advertising and all-around creative rage. Nice pink slip wallpaper, guys!

Enter your work for recognition where it really matters: on Coney Island; and for a trophy that says everything you've always wanted to but couldn't. Doesn't matter if the work never ran; that's not really what this is about. And being a sloppy cheap drunk? Totally okay.

See the lucky cats that won last year.

Follow the event on Twitter (@WrathofCannes) and demonstrate solidarity on Facebook. The fan page bio sums it up like a champ: Those who can go to Cannes. Those who can't go to the East River.

We'll clink glasses to that.
