The Y&R network closed out the Cannes Lions Festival of Creativity with its best performance to date winning 89 Lions, a 35% increase over its previous agency record 2014 win count of 66 Lions.
For the second year in a row, Y&R had more offices contributing wins than any of the other top winning global agency networks, with 30 offices taking home Lions across every single region. Y&R, which was the fourth most-awarded network, finished the festival with one Grand Prix, 10 Gold, 25 Silver and 52 Bronze Lions, as well as one Chimera.
Y&R has more than doubled its number of Lions since 2011, when it took home 44. In each of the years since, the agency has increased its number of wins incrementally, as well as the number of offices entering the competition.
