Cannes Pride Day Six scores and Top 50 most retweeted tweets

It’s been a good last Friday for the AdParlor Pride of Cannes Lions as we see some familiar faces at the top of the tree. Wiliam J Ward and Syed Abdul Karim hang in there at #1 and #2 respectively. Wendy Clark jumps 72 places to #3 – could she be a late winner.

See the full Day Six leaderboard.


We’ll find out this evening when all the tweets, retweets and @mentions are counted over the course of the whole Cannes Lions Festival of Creativity.

It was good to see Cannes Pride being picked up by agencies who are working out one way to win is to get other agency folk to engage with their champion.  It’s a good strategy and one that we’ll leverage for next year’s Pride.

I thought it might be interesting to look at some of the overall stats in todays analysis. After all, the objective of the Cannes Pride campaign is to promote Cannes Lions through the social media channels of individual lions.

The busiest day was Tuesday with (17k tweets) as opposed to Friday’s 6k tweets – perhaps everyone went home.

Of the top 3 most retweeted tweets Ogilvy and Twitter pushed the most interesting content.

Tweet #1 – Retweeted more than 2000 times – The best way to predict your future is to create it


Tweet #2 – Twitter’s data visualization of their new TV ad synched with Twitter advertising platform > 1,300 retweets  (this was over 3 different tweets with similar content)


Tweet #3 – Ogilvy’s Smoking Kid advert >750 retweets


And for those who love a leaderboard, here’s the full list:
