From the pulpit

Patrick Collister

Issue 27 | June 2013

Editing this issue has been hard.

We have had 177 campaigns submitted from agencies in 17 countries.

Maybe it’s because Cannes is about to happen. Agencies have written their awards entries and made the submission videos and want to test the water with us first.

If you sent us work and it didn’t make the cut, then it is because the competition for space in Directory 27 has been exceptional.

I believe that every single idea we have showcased in this issue is good enough to win a Lion of some sort in June.

Will any win Gold?
