We celebrated the Festival’s 70th anniversary, recognized the creative industry’s most inspiring and impactful work and took part in shaping the next wave of creativity.

 

We had an exciting week of thoughtful and inspiring conversations, fostering new connections and most importantly, celebrating Edelman's Lions Awards. Edelman won 9 Lions during the Festival: 1 Gold, 4 Silver and 4 Bronze Awards, and we were honored to have dozens more recognitions, with an additional 17 Lions partner wins and 22 total shortlists. With more than 27,000 entries each year, only around 3% receive a coveted Lion of any sort. Our wins recognized 5 separate campaigns across 6 different Lions categories, a truly impressive display of Edelman’s variety of work and spectrum of expertise. The work spans across three regions and four countries and is more work than we have ever been recognized for in a single year before.
