JWT Cairo wins at the 9th edition of the MENA Cristal Festival, with the Festival Grand Cristal awarded to its campaign Fakka for the advertiser Vodafone Egypt!

During 3 days, 3/6 February 2014, the Intercontinental Hotel in Mzaar Kfardebian – Lebanon played host to more than 750 advertising and media professionals from Middle East, North Africa and Europe. They all came together to celebrate the 9th edition of the MENA Cristal Festival, under the theme “Where Innovation meets Creativity.”

Launched in 2005 as an extension of the Global Cristal Festival in Europe, this event seeks to reward the highest levels of creativity in the media world in the MENA region, and has grown to become one of the prestigious events in this field.

For this edition, Leo Burnett was crowned Network of the Year whereas Leo Burnett Beirut won the Best Integrated Advertising Agency of the Year award. Impact BBDO Beirut was first in the Creative Ranking of the Festival. Starcom also scored a double win in both Media Network of the Year and Best Media Agency of the Year award for the Dubai office.

Christian Cappe, Founder & CEO of the Cristal Festival Network, comments: “This year again, the MENA Cristal Festival has reinforced the quality of its prize lists. The independence left to the jury in the decision making process and the precision coupled to the diversity amongst its members lead to a renewed MENA Cristal Festival footprint.”
