Outside of the rich pickings by McCann Health, for more conventional advertising work, Ogilvy India bagged nine metals – Two Golds, two Silvers and five Bronzes.


Here’s what Piyush Pandey, Executive Chairman & Creative Director, Ogilvy South Asia said: “I am very happy for the young people who work at Ogilvy India and have done us proud.  My congratulations to all other agencies in India.” Added Kunal Jeswani, CEO, Ogilvy India:  “People often ask me what differentiates Ogilvy. As consumers move seamlessly from one platform to the next and agencies and marketers struggle to keep up, what should clients look to Ogilvy for?  What is the one thing that we rally our people and services around, that defines us and sets us apart?  It is the ability to tell great brand stories and build brand love.  The nine Lions we picked up at the 2017 Cannes Festival is recognition from one of the toughest competitions in our industry, that we do this incredible well.  Great clients and great teams partner to create great work at Ogilvy every day.  How do we do this consistently? We don’t create work to win awards.  We just bring our best game to every client and every brief. That’s how we win.”


Said Kainaz Karmakar and HarshadRajadhyaksha, the creative leaders on Savlon Chalk Sticks which is possibly the second most awarded campaign at 2017 Cannes (after McCann’s Afghanistan ministry of health):  “Savlon’s Healthy Hands Chalk Sticks is simple, surprising and effective,  That is the reason why juries from around the world have thought it to be worthy of such heavy metals, in such large numbers. Beauty Tips by Reshma also got us the highly regarded Lion for Creative Effectiveness. The honesty of this campaign cuts through the clutter and goes straight to the heart,  We are beyond happy and we share this glory with our rockstar teams and our brave clients. “
