Captured @ Cannes


With Cannes Lions 2016 winding down for another year, we take a moment to look at what’s caught our eye and got the industry talking about over the last 24 hours in what will be our final day on La Croisette!

What took social media by storm?

This Ice Exhibit has been turning heads this week. As part of a collaboration with Instagram and Facebook, the artist (left), known as ‘Hula’, has been working on an ice sculpture painting. Check out @the_hula to see more of his work!

The Next Rembrandt’ took the industry by a storm this week, picking up two Grand Prix awards, the Innovation Lion award and 15 Cannes Lions awards in total. The project was a collaborative effort between ING, J Walter Thompson and Microsoft, demonstrating the art of what’s possible when data and creativity come together. Check out more here

The week has seen some of the biggest names in the celebrity world take to the stage to inspire and entertain at Cannes Lions. A few of our personal highlights…

  • Take That hopped onboard the NewsUK yacht, and performed at their smallest ever gig, with just 100 people in attendance
  • Jason Derulo took to the stage at the MailOnline yacht party, where it looks like things got a little bit hot…
  • LiveNation was sure to live up to expectations, as Dave Grohl performed at its very own private gig
