A painfully touching wedding speech, a silly power-ballad for beer, a 'demonically spicy' cup of noodles, a girl who perseveres despite a disfiguring skin condition, and a difficult-to-explain party scene comprised the subject matter for five pieces of APAC work that won Bronze Lions in Film Craft Tuesday night at Cannes Lions 2019.

Globally, the category yielded 78 Lions, with a Grand Prix going to a series of films for The New York Times by Final Cut New York and Droga5. 

The table below details all the winning APAC work. See all our Cannes Lions 2019 award coverage.
