Cannes 2012: JWT, AMV and Albion all win Radio Lions

UK agencies put in a better showing this year in the Radio category, with JWT, AMV BBDO, Albion and Global Radio Creative, winning Lions.

The Grand Prix went to Brazilian agency Talent Sao Paolo for its "repellent radio" work for Go Outside Magazine. The work comprised a high frequency broadcast with the ability to turn the radio into a mosquito repellent.

JWT led the pack winning Silver in two categories for its Tourism Ireland campaign, featuring the "curragh races", "pirate boat tour" and "lisdoonvarna matchmaking festival" spots.

AMV BBDO won two Bronzes, one for its Domestic Violence Awareness "women’s aid" work, and another for its London Metropolitan Police work "bus" and "tube" spots.

Albion London also got Bronze for its spot for the charity Anthony Nolan "perfect match".

Global Radio Creative, Global Radio’s in-house shop, got a Bronze for War Child with its "XFM breakfast ad breaks".

Last year no UK agencies made the Radio shortlist.
