Droga5 wins Grand Prix for Good for Help Remedies

Right, here we go, last winners for Cannes:

Grand Prix for Good (awarded by the Titanium jury): ‘Help I Want To Save a Life’ for Help Remedies from Droga5.

Ad Agency of the Year: 1/ Wieden+Kennedy Portland 2/Bartle Bogle Hegarty 3/Ogilvy Brazil.

Independent Agency of the Year 1/W+K (as above) 2/Serviceplan Munich/3 Jung von Matt Hamburg.

Palme D’Or (best production company) MJZ USA (this used to be the top award, how things change).

Network of the Year 1/O&M 2/BBDO 3/DDB (so it wasn’t all bad news Amir).

Young Lions 1/Italy 2/Poland 3/Chile

Young Marketers 1/Portugal 2/Australia 3/Canada

Thinks that’s it (all the others have been covered elsewhere).

No doubt we’ll be musing further on some of the issues, like alleged vote rigging and that hardy perennial: why were the Brits so crap (again)?

Droga5 won the Grand Prix for Good for creative Graham Douglas’s invention of a bandage pack designed to prompt more bone marrow donations.

Here’s some more from the campaign.
