William Eccleshare, CEO of Clear Channel Outdoor, said: "The 2014 Outdoor Lions has been another fantastic reminder of the vast range of inspiring ways in which advertisers are utilizing our medium to engage with consumers in the out-of-home space in new and exciting ways. This year’s awards attracted 5660 entries - the highest number of entries in any Cannes Lions award category – including several big winners that incorporated digital out-of-home and interactive elements, truly demonstrating that the oldest medium has never been more exciting or relevant for advertisers.”

The Grand Prix winning campaign saw ANZ Bank, the principle sponsor of the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardis Gras, convey its message of diversity and inclusion by transforming ATMs into dazzling ‘GAYTMs’, decorating them with rhinestones, sequins, studs, leather and fur. Withdrawals came with a rainbow-colored receipt, and all transaction fees were donated to a gay and lesbian charity.

This year’s Outdoor Lions jury was led by Jury President, Jose Miguel Sokoloff, president of the Lowe Global Creative Council, and co-chairman and chief creative officer of the Interpublic Group's Lowe SSP3 in Bogota, Colombia. Fellow jury member, Darren Spiller, executive creative director of DDB Group in Melbourne commented: "Outdoor is an old category but it has been completely re-invented."

This year, the Outdoor Lions attracted 5660 entries and shortlisted 501. The jury awarded a total of 1 Grand Prix, 18 Gold, 40 Silver and 70 Bronze trophies.

Suzanne Grimes, President & Chief Operating Officer for Clear Channel Outdoor – North America commented: “Each year, the Outdoor Lions provide tremendous inspiration celebrating the power of a picture to evoke emotion. The enduring value of out-of-home as a medium, with unparalleled visual impact, unskippability and new digital capabilities that provide immediacy and flexibility, is more important to advertisers today than ever before.
