Digital Craft: no APAC winners at Cannes 2018

The Digital Craft jury awarded fewer Lions than most — but none were taken home by agencies from the APAC region.

The USA — specifically Isobar/Viacom in New York — picked up the one Digital Craft Grand Prix awarded this year with their Aeronaut VR campaign for William Patrick Corgan.

Judges also awarded a total of 3 Golds, 8 Silver and 16 Bronze Lions in this category, but none of these were given to an agency from the APAC region. 

Two of the Gold Lions went to USA agencies: BBDO New York for their 'Live Looper' campaign for Downtown Records; and Here Be Dragons, Los Angeles for their 'Dispatch' campaign for Oculus. 

The final gold went to Ogilvy Brasil for the 'Ricky Brasil' campaign for Forbes Brasil.
