This year is the first year when mobile advertising had a separate awards category at Cannes Lions and we're thrilled to have picked up an award today for our collaboration on Project Re:Brief with Coca Cola with help from Grow Interactive and Johannes Leonardo. But more important is the fact that mobile is now such a big part of the festival and generating so much discussion and interest.
On Wednesday we have a Hangout to talk to the mobile creatives at Cannes on the stand-out mobile moments and inspirations. We've got the mobile movers and shakers to come to our beach-side Creative Sandbox, including James Hilton, Co-founder and Creative, from AKQA as well as some surprise guests, for a lively session on mobile creativity. And in true Hangout style we have some remote guests including Richard Ting, SVP, executive creative director, mobile and social platforms - R/GA, joining us from further afield. All hosted by our very own Google creatives Tom Uglow and Reuben Halper for what is sure to be an entertaining and enlightening session.
It is on Wednesday afternoon at 9.15 am EST, 3.15 pm (CET), follow the Google+ Creative Sandbox page here and tune-in to join us.
