Media, Outdoor and Radio Winners

Cannes, 22 June 2011 – Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity held the second of four awards ceremonies last night to honour the Media, Outdoor and Radio Lions winners.

The Media Lions category, which saw a 34% rise in entries this year to 2,895, was judged by a team of international media professionals led by Maria Luisa Francoli Plaza, Global Chief Executive Officer of MPG. 222 entries were shortlisted with 14 winning Gold, 31 Silver and 38 Bronze Lions. Cheil Worldwide Seoul, Korea took home the Media Grand Prix for their entry ‘Homeplus Subway Virtual Store’ for Tesco.

Two Grands Prix may be awarded in the Outdoor category; one for Billboards & Street Furniture and Posters and the second for Ambient.
