In June 2017, Publicis Groupe announced that it won’t be participating in events and awards until July 1, 2018. In this year, it would focus on the development of Marcel, which it announced on May 24.
Yet, we see the Groupe’s agencies winning some awards.
Publicis Groupe clarifies in a statement that these entries have been entered by clients themselves, representing 399 campaigns as of 9th June.
The only exception to this is BBH London’s “3 Billboards” campaign for Justice4Grenfell, the organization trying to get justice for the victims of the 2017 Grenfell Tower disaster in London. “Publicis Groupe is proud to support this cause and creativity for good at the Cannes Lions,” it said in the statement.
