Fuck Cannes Lions Campaign
A group of creatives unpleased with the policies and their "damaging" effects on the advertising industry of Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity created a protest campaign: Fuck Cannes Lions. The campaign consists of a series of posters you can see below that drive the visitors to the site which explains what's wrong with Cannes Lions:
1- Let copycat shit win like it’s no problem!
2- Created a whole new space of advertisements which lack strategy and has nothing to do with people living on planet earth.
3- Their name, logo and communication SUCK! yet they want us to think they have the right to judge our creativity.
4- Are about money and won’t consider the creativity of real talents who can’t buy into their shit.
5- And yeah, let us not forget how they want us to believe that 30 year-old shitholes are and can be considered “young”.
In an unexpected turn of events I learned from the creators of the campaign, that they are planning to enter this poster campaign to Cannes and expect to win too.
