Published by

The second awards show of the week in Cannes last night saw the focus shift to the Craft and Entertainment Tracks, with Nike's Dream Crazy from Wieden+Kennedy Portland picking up the first ever Entertainment for Sport Grand Prix.

The Digital Craft Grand Prix was awarded to VIRTUE Copenhagen for Carlings adDRESS THE FUTURE, whereby the multi-brand chain created a digital fashion collection to raise awareness of the environmental damage of fast fashion.



For Film Craft, Final Cut New York picked up the Grand Prix for The Truth Is Worth It campaign for The New York Times, which aims to show that original, independent journalism requires resources, time and commitment, and that subscribing to newspaper is crucial in that effort.



In the Industry Craft Lions, the Grand Prix was presented to Momentum Worldwide New York for Nike, which transformed a church into a basketball facility called Just Do It HQ at The Church for Chicago’s youth.
