Cannes Lions 2021 looked different this year, as creativity was fueled during Zoom chats instead of in-person brainstorming sessions due to the pandemic. 

Although the way ads were created shifted, innovative work was born despite limited production and months of lockdowns around the world. From Burger King’s “Moldy Whopper” to Bodyform’s “Womb Stories,” some of the year’s best creative work was honored at the Festival.

Check out some of the Cannes Lions’ Grand Prix winners below.
