Saatchi & Saatchi Sydney won an Innovation Lion for their ‘Penny the Pirate’ campaign for OPSM.  Sydney also won an Effectiveness Lion for ‘Penny the Pirate’.

The 25th Anniversary New Directors’ Showcase was celebrated at Cannes Lions with a one-off screening for 2,300 Cannes delegates of ‘25x25: An Experiment in Film’.  ‘25x25’ was created by 25 NDS alumni; Daniel Kleinman, Dawn Shadforth, Floria Sigismondi, Jonathan Glazer, Michel Gondry, Ivan Zacharias, Traktor, Dante Ariola, Ringan Ledwidge, Antoine Bardou-Jacquet, Carl Erik Rinsch, Noam Murro, Tim Bullock, Dougal Wilson, James Rouse, Jamie Rafn, Fredrik Bond, Philippe Andre, Jake Scott, Ne-o, David Wilson, Daniel Wolfe, Ilya Naishuller, Vania Heymann and Charlie Robins.  AdAge called the NDS event ‘a dazzling experiment in film’.  ‘25x25’ introduced the NDS Class of 2015, 14 outstanding new talents whose work you can view here: 

Robert Senior, Saatchi & Saatchi Worldwide CEO commented: “What Paul Arden started in 1991 as a one-off event has become the best attended and highest rated Cannes Lions event outside of the awards.  Cannes is a magnificent circus of creativity.  Many companies bring wonderful celebrities to add extra topspin, but Saatchi & Saatchi brings complete unknowns to celebrate their willingness and impulse to cross frontiers and try something new.”
