Nike takes fourth Cannes Grand Prix for best website

CANNES - Nike has scooped its fourth consecutive Grand Prix for best website in the Cyber Lions at Cannes this year, the third time that work created for the sports brand by Danish agency FramFab has won the prize.

This year FramFab was rewarded for its Panna KO football tournament site, adding to the 2002 and 2000 Grands Prix it picked up for different work on Nike websites. In 2001, the Grand Prix went to the Canadian agency Critical Mass, for a Nike athletic shoes site.

Another Scandinavian agency took the best online ad award, the Swedish agency Forsman & Bodenfors Gothenburg for its work on the launch of the Volvo XC 90. Details of the campaign can be viewed here.

UK agencies took home six Lions, including a Gold for Hi-Res! London, for its work on Sony PlayStation2's The Third Place. Silver Lions were won by Publicis London for work for the homeless charity De Paul Trust, and by AKQA for work on Nike's Bowerman.

Bronze Lions were awarded to Lateral London, for Levi's Europe; Glue London for the homeless charity Shelter; and OgilvyOne London, for its work on IBM's Wimbledon sponsorship last year.

US agencies won more Lions than any other country, with 10 prizes out of 226 entries. Brazil won nine Lions out of 159 entries. UK agencies entered 156 pieces of work into this year's Cyber Lions.
