MediaCom has been named Media Network of the year at the 2018 Cannes Lions Festival. The agency’s work for Tesco in the UK landed the Grand Prix for Excellence in Media Planning, while campaigns for P&G’s Gillette in Israel added two Silver Lions and a Bronze Lion. The agency also received eight shortlist nominations, making MediaCom the most decorated media agency in the competition.
The Grand Prix campaign, Tesco’s Food Love Stories, enabled the retail giant to turn food shopping from a functional to an emotional purchase. While competitors focused on food provenance, Tesco used its first food campaign in three years to celebrate “the food you love to cook for the people you love”.
“This is fantastic news, and I’m hugely proud of the UK team for winning the ultimate prize in our industry. Nor could I be happier for our client, Tesco, who worked in partnership with us to create this memorable campaign,“ said Stephen Allan, Worldwide Chairman and CEO of MediaCom.
The fully-integrated campaign delivered a 53% improvement in quality scores, making Food Love Stories Tesco’s most effective campaign ever. MediaCom worked with BBH London on the campaign with ITV Creative, Global Radio, Facebook and JCDecaux also providing production services.
MediaCom Israel picked up three Lions for its work with P&G’s Gillette. The Babyface campaign picked up a Silver Lion by encouraging new dads to build strong physical bonds with their children by shaving their scratchy beards, while I Don’t Roll on Shabbos grabbed both Silver and Bronze for enabling members of the country’s Orthodox community to buy and use deodorant on the Jewish day of rest. I Don’t Roll on Shabbos boosted Gillette’s share of the deodorant market from 3% to 15%.
