Everything you need to know about Indian Creative Entries at Cannes Lions International 2019

Cannes Lions 2019 India Entries

Social Samosa creates a comprehensive list of all Cannes Lions 2019 India Entries – take a look at which campaigns represent the Indian ad world.

Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity extends for five days in June in exploration of creativity as communicated by brands worldwide.

Cannes Lions 2019 will commence on June 17 and revel until 21 June. The Jury Presidents have declared ‘bravery’, ‘boldness’ and ‘simplicity’ as key themes but more importantly content that reflects the shifting culture and public space.

Even this year some of India’s powerhouse agencies with their brilliant ideas driven by equally competent strategy – namely FCB India, WATConsult, Tonic Worldwide, Leo Burnett, Dentsu Impact, VMLY&R India, Isobar, Cheil India, Blink Digital, Geometry Encompass Havas India and Rage Communications – prepare to contend for the host of Lions.

While established brands raise the bar higher for commercial excellence, NGO’s bring revolutionised solutions for rural India. However, one binding factor has been the active inclusion of pressing issues India is grappling with, giving a new face to our communication industry.
