Australia has ranked sixth globally at Cannes Lions, scoring 56 gongs overall – including four Grand Prix.
This figure is 50% less than our total wins last year, likely impacted by the cap Cannes Lions introduced as part of its overhaul, limiting the number of categories one campaign can enter.
Host/Havas Palau Pledge and Tourism Australia's Dundee work were the most celebrated ideas from Australia, with Palau Pledge taking out three Grand Prix gongs overall.
The US ranked first creatively, picking up 332 Lions, more than three times the total of second-placed UK who landed 110.
Brazil was placed third with 101 Lions, followed by France with 70 and Germany with 66.
Spain was placed seventh with 34 Lions, followed by the Netherlands at number eight with 31, New Zealand at ninth with 26 and Colombia taking the 10th spot with 22.
