India@Cannes: Creativeland looks to repeat 2011 story in effectiveness

19 Jun,2012

Having bagged the inaugural Creative Effectiveness Lions last year, India may find the going tough this year as it has received just a single shortlist nomination. This is good considering that India has sent only two entries this year. Last year the number was 7.


At a total of 92, the total number of entries too have seen a sharp decline this year by 35 per cent. Last year, the number was 142. Leading the tally is USA that has sent 27 entries, Australia has sent 9 while Germany has sent 7 entries.


With just a single shortlist, Creativeland Asia looks to recreate the magic it created last year with its entry Plan-T for Parle Agro.


Just to recap, the awards will honour creativity which has shown a measurable and proven impact on a client’s business – creativity that affects consumer behaviour, brand equity, sales, and so on. Only entries that were either shortlisted or Lion winners, across all categories at Cannes Lions 2011 are eligible to enter into this category as these will have already been judged and established as being creatively world-class. PricewaterhouseCoopers have reviewed each entry for the Cannes Creative Effectiveness Lions and checked that claims made therein are supported by appropriate data and that entries are internally consistent and mathematically accurate. Entries will be rewarded for strategy (25 per cent), Idea (25per cent) and Results and Effectiveness (50per cent).


The entries will be judged as one with no categories. Representing India at the jury will be Nadia Chauhan, Joint Managing Director & Chief Marketing Officer, Parle Agro. The awards will be held on Tuesday evening in the Grand Auditorium, Palais des Festivals.
