Cannes Lions

  2. 2. About the Festival The Cannes Lions International Advertising Festival is the world's only truly global meeting place for professionals in the communications industry who want to keep ahead of the curve.
  3. 3. About the Festival During 7 days in June , thousands of delegates from 90 countries gather in Cannes to listen to speakers such as Sir Martin Sorrell, Bob Greenberg, Kofi Annan, Steve Ballmer, Biz Stone, Maurice Lévy, Bob Geldof, Mark Tutssel, Tham Khai Meng and hundreds of others, whilst around 250 jury menbers judge over 22,000 pieces of the most creative advertising from across the world.
  4. 4. About the Festival The networking and learning opportunity of the year , Cannes Lions is the must-attend event for any creative professional wishing to stay ahead with the innovations in their field.
  5. 5. 1954 Inspired by the International Film Festival , which had been staged in Cannes since the late 1940s, a group of worldwide cinema screen advertising contractors (SAWA ) felt that the makers of advertising films should receive similar recognition as their colleagues in the feature film industry.
  6. 6. 1954 In order to promote the cinema medium, SAWA established the International Advertising Film Festival . The first Festival took place in Venice in September 1954 with 187 film entries from 14 countries competing. The lion of Piazza San Marcos in Venice was the inspiration for the Lion trophy. The second Festival was held in Monte Carlo and then in Cannes in 1956.
  7. 7. 1954 After that, the Festival took place alternatively between Venice and Cannes. The films in the competition where split into two categories: TV and Cinema . They were judged according to technical crafts. categories for commercials of different lengths, live action and animation.
  8. 8. 1967 The TV and cinema ads were split into product or service categories. This structure has been constantly updated to accommodate new products, services and marketing trends .

  12. 12. 1990 Up until the first Gulf War in 1990, the worldwide advertising industry was prosperous. This is probably why the Festival maintained its original format of a film-only competition . In response to the advertising crisis at the time of the first Gulf War, the Festival added value to the event by complementing the showcase of all Film entries with a developing programme of high-profile seminars organised by some of the biggest names in the industry making Cannes Lions a unique learning experience .
  13. 13. 1992 The International Advertising Film Festival became known as the International Advertising Festival .

  31. 36. Describe the brief from the client <ul><li>The target audience were new customers, with a vague awareness of the Great Barrier Reef (and Australia), but no awareness of the islands. Our goal was to raise international awareness of the Islands of the Great Barrier Reef (a new brand for Tourism Queensland) and transform a popular day-trip destination into an international tourist’s dream holiday. Classified press ads, a PR campaign, in-store posters, online recruitment listings and display ads worked together to drive traffic to the website. Visiting and engaging with the website would drive visitation to the islands in the long term. </li></ul>
  32. 37. Creative Execution <ul><li>Creative Execution: </li></ul><ul><li>The best aspect of ‘The Best Job in the World’ is its location, and although the generous salary is appealing, the real reward is in spending six months living above the reef and exploring the region. The ‘Best Job in the World’ idea was born out of the brand’s positioning – Life Above and provokes Global Experience Seekers to engage with a unique brand asset – the Great Barrier Reef. This would be one of the only integrated international recruitment campaigns, and the only recruitment campaign used to launch a tourism brand. </li></ul>
  33. 38. Describe the creative solution to the brief/objective <ul><li>We tapped into a universal desire and created a job that sounded too good to be true - anyone from anywhere in the world could apply. The Islands Caretaker role is a completely genuine employment opportunity within Tourism Queensland, living on the Islands of the Great Barrier Reef and reporting back to the world. To apply, candidates had to create a persuasive and entertaining video application demonstrating their knowledge of the region. Tourism Queensland wanted to achieve 14,000 application videos from 8 key markets, plus news coverage in mass media and popular social networking sites. </li></ul>
  34. 39. Describe the results in as much detail as possible <ul><li>No single tourism campaign (and potentially no single campaign) has ever had such a significant global reach across the spectrum of media and generated such a high volume and highly impassioned response from consumers. - 34,684 applicants from 201* countries created 610 hours of video content which passionately promotes our product. - Over 450,000 votes for the Wild Card applicant. - In 56 days had 6,849,504 visits, 47,548,514 page views with an average of 8.62 minutes spent on the site. - Media coverage has been estimated at over $US100M from a campaign budget of $US1.2M. *Value of media coverage estimated by Tourism Queensland, as at 19/3/09. **Web-coded countries (only 195 countries are recognised by the UN). </li></ul>
