Three more shortlists, 13 more Canadian contenders

Early Monday, as a wave of new arrivals wheeled their luggage down streets in search of their accommodation, and others wanted to know where to pick up their delegate badges, the first official day of the 70th International Festival of Creativity began with three more shortlists: Brand Experience & Activation; Creative B2B; and Creative Data.

After 167 Canadian entries made Sunday’s 17 shortlists, just 13 were on Monday’s lists.

In the Experience Track, it was the Brand Experience & Activation Lions, while Creative B2B and Creative Data were unveiled from the Engagement Track.
