Cannes Lions: Industry and Digital Craft Winners 2021 /
Dove and Fortnite were awarded Grands Prix the categories celebrating craft at this year's Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity
Dove has won the Industry Craft Grand Prix for its Courage is Beautiful campaign, which champions the frontline doctors and nurses fighting the coronavirus.
Created by Ogilvy’s London and Toronto offices, the campaign featured photographs of fatigued and emotional nurses and doctors with mask lines on their faces, next to the strapline ‘Courage Is Beautiful’.
The campaign also won a Grand Prix in the Print & Publishing category earlier this week.
In the Digital Craft category, the Grand Prix went to Epic Games for its Astronomical Travis Scott Fortnite event in April 2020. The in-game concert was attended by 28 million people and has since racked up over 158 million views on YouTube.
