CANNES - A Print & Publishing Grand Prix won on Monday will have to share shelf space at Y&R NZ Auckland after Wednesday's awards ceremony, because the agency's 'McWhopper' campaign for Burger King has now won a Media Grand Prix as well.

The category also yielded five Gold Lion winners from APAC countries, out of a total of 12 Gold Lions awarded: TBWA Melbourne for ANZ, GPY&R Brisbane for the Australian Road Safety Foundation, Havas Worldwide Shanghai for the Global Road Safety Partnership, Ogilvy & Mather Bangkok for PETA, and PHD Auckland for the 'Brewtroleum' campaign on behalf of DB Export, which has already won an Outdoor Grand Prix (for Colenso BBDO), among other awards.
