We were delighted to win the prestigious Innovation Grand Prix at the Cannes Lions festival of Creativity. After submitting a film & application several months ago we pitched live to judges from VC, corporate & creative industries and then answered some of their tough questions questions. According to the reports from the judges there were some impassioned deliberations before we were awarded the top prize in the category. They made Chris present at the awards ceremony to an audience of 2,000 plus before we could get our hands on the award.

Some great coverage and some of the reasons why we were awarded from the judges are below.
