Specsavers & Golin win PR Grand Prix at Cannes Lions 2024

Finally, ten years after PRmoment's founder Ben Smith's infamous post questioning whether "Cannes is working for PR?", it's happened.

The PR community has won an idea generation Grand Prix in the PR category at Cannes. I hope it was worth it. Financially, I mean.

Another winning PR campaign awarded in Cannes this year was Ogilvy PR New York's CeraVe’s 'Michael CeraVe' campaign. This won an idea creation Grand Prix in the social and influence category.

This campaign was also praised in February's Global Creativity Review, if you'd like some more insight into the work.
