#CannesLions2019: Radio & Audio shortlist

The Cannes Lions Radio & Audio shortlist has been released, with SA seeing four agencies appear with multiple entries making it to the final round at Cannes Lions 2019.
The Communication Track looks at the big creative idea, where campaigns are brought to life through brilliant partnerships, people and storytelling.

The Radio & Audio Lions celebrate creative audio content that showcases ideas wired for sound. Work that communicates a brand message through audio excellence, sonic innovation or superior aural storytelling.
