Starcom MediaVest Group MENA took home a Lion award at the Cannes Lions 2009 Awards Ceremony for its Mars campaign entitled ‘Galaxy, Fall in Love Again’, a company statement said.

SMG is allegedly the “only local agency” to take home a Cannes Lion award.

The campaign encouraged women to submit their poetry and recite them on air during MBC1′s Morning Show. Over 4,300 Arab women participated in the campaign.

“This continues a run of excellence that began with our “Media Agency of the Year” honor at the Dubai Lynx awards,” said Laura Desmond, CEO of SMG Global. “It is welcome recognition of SMG MENA’s commitment to creative, innovative work and I am confident the team will continue to meet the enviably high standards they have created for themselves.”

    I am a bit surprised by two things. First of all SMG is part of an international media company. They might have a local office but it hardly makes them a local agency.

    Now, even if it was the case, Tonic Communications, a truly local UAE agency, brought a Gold Lion in Print in 2005 for Sony Wega.

    Since then other “local” agencies part of international groups have brought gold lions.

    This being said the work from SMG was good and well deserving of a Gold. There’s really no need to make this better/ worse by adding disinformation around this win.
