The Wrath of Cannes 6
As you know, much of adland will be flocking to Cannes next week for the industryâ€™s biggest global awards show of the year. If youâ€™re not able to attend, there is a NYC solution: Wrath of Cannes 6. Created by NY-based indie agency Woods Witt Dealy & Sons six years ago, Wrath is billed as the â€śotherâ€ť awards show, â€śa bitter response to the self-congratulating, glad-handing, marblebag-wearing, Dom-swilling, bronzer-slathered soirees that fester up on the beach in Cannes,â€ť according to WWD&S co-founder and creative director Harry Woods.
This year, Wrath is half-assing things. The agency is â€śtoo busyâ€ť to judge work or develop a brief, so instead of an awards show, theyâ€™ve decided to throw a raging party that will be sure to give the Gutter Bar a run for its money. Plus thereâ€™s free booze â€“ and one can always make time for that. Check out the site here.
