Wrath of Cannes 2010: It's all about Cannes-tent
Wrath of Cannes is back, and this year it’s all about content! That's Cannes-tent in France-speak.
Now in its 4th year, Wrath of Cannes—known as the “other” awards show—is a bitter response to the self-congratulating, glad-handing, marblebag-wearing, Dom-swilling, bronzer-slathered soirees that fester up on the beach in Cannes. But make no mistake, Wrath of Cannes’ creators—indie agency Woods Witt Dealy & Sons—would rather be there. So it’s time you kicked back with a foolish, boozy, pointless celebration of the best work your overworked and underpaid souls can muster.
Now, what exactly is Cannes-tent? It is anything on video. Is a television commercial Cannes-tent? Yes. Is a print ad Cannes-tent? No. Is a video of a print ad Cannes-tent? Obviously.
Entrants must be junior level (2 years experience or less) or have absolutely no experience at all. There is no call for entry, no paper work and no entry fee. Just be sure to bring your Cannes-tent—on a thumb drive, or other removable media—by 8pm the night of the show. Entries will be judged in real-time, and The Grand Coney (see attached photo) will be awarded at the end of the night.
When: Wednesday, June 23 @ 7pm
Where: Kabin (92 2nd Ave bet 5th/6th St)
