Cannes Lions

The Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity is one advertising’s most prestigious virtual and in-person events, including learning, inspiration and networking from all over the world. The festival also includes the most prestigious creative awards show in the world. It surveys over 30,000 pieces of creative and effective work from 89 countries, in 27 distinct creative disciplines.

Cannes describes “winning at Cannes Lions puts you among the creative elite. It means you've created game-changing work, that your work has delivered results and moved the creative needle.” And Isobar is proud to have been a consistent recipient of the awards. The Awards show in 2020 was cancelled, but is due to return in 2021.


In 2019 Isobar completed its most successful week for awards - with teams from Australia & China in APAC, to the Amsterdam team in EMEA, to the Brazilian team in Americas being recognised with Lions and Shortlists for the breadth of our offering.


Reviewed by over 400 jury members, from 50 countries the Lions set the global benchmark for creativity and effectiveness, and Isobar was recognised in the fastest-growing categories for 2019. Isobar Netherlands won six Silver Lions for Road Tales from Volkswagen. Isobar China won a Gold Lion for KFC Christmas Pocket Store in Creative eCommerce. Isobar Brazil and Isobar Australia were recognised in shortlists for Bud and Carriberrie respectively.


In 2018, Isobar won the Grand Prix in the Digital Craft Lion for ‘Aeronaut’, a world-first VR experience for William Patrick Corgan (aka Billy Corgan of the Smashing Pumpkins). In the inaugural Innovation Lions in 2014, Isobar Brazil was recognised for Fiat Live Store.
