You and I generally don't agree, but I too am surprised that this won..

how can everythink in this naive fashion..... dont judge this work by the face value.... the essence of the ad is that the person photographing is so engrossed by the quality of the picture thathe is not realising wat posture he is in. On a regular not all the postures shown in the ads are unachievable to an untrained person. Observation people. Dont just comment blindly.

Your first sentence makes you sound stupid "how can everythink in this naive fashion....." sorry but "everyone" on this site are mostly creatives and probably the target so what they think of the ad is actually valid. If the target doesn't get it then it's a shit ad. It doesn't matter what some judges at a competition thought. This ad doesn't do it.

i totally agree with you. but this ad is not cannes material. i mean seriously come on....

i see tht the people in the ad are so engrossed in taking a picture, but that doesn't imply anything abt Nikon.

a photographer with any kind of camera would be ready to go for an obscene position to get their shot right. so what's so special abt Nikon ?

i don know, cuz the ad doesn't say it. i mean, yeah it is a bit funny to see people in weird position but thats just it.

to me it just says "laugh and move on, nothing else to see here".

If a photographer is lost and make those poses than probably he/she doesn't deserve to hold a Nikon.

I like the concept and tagline, but the execution falls short. Why limited yourself to expressing odd postures? With an entire world moving around a photographer, I think there is a more clever way to represent this idea.

I can't believe the rubbish that wins at Cannes, I used to aspire to win a lion but seriously this work doesn't make me laugh, smile or wish I did it... it's really bad. D&AD is where it's at, at least the Brits don't award crap like this.

well matt i disagree with you...... there are two kinds of ads.... on which sells and another which is done solely for awards. You are right about the failure of this ad to reach its designated TG but at the end of the day there is a solid concept behind this ad which deserves a little appreciation too. and therefor i feel this ad deserves some recognition.

I'm not saying that there isn't a concept behind this but the execution is off. Like someone else said in an earlier comment. why not use something other than the photographer's pose to show how they are lost in it. maybe a bird crapped on their head and they didn't notice (that was just off the top of my head as an example) But for me the posture of the camera user doesn't work for me. Even if this is just an award ad I still don't feel the execution is good.

This ad is good enough, but it doesn't describe Nicon. I think that this ad needs a specific character of Nicon a little more.

this won for its own reasons, you may all be creative, but this was taken by a professional and picked by professionals therefor if you are so creative and just as professional you will be able to see its reason for winning.
