Cannes 2009 Predictions from Leo Burnett

Leo Burnett Worldwide earlier this month came out with their top 50 predictions for winners at Cannes International Advertising Festival, in the form of a list and as the basis for a screening event held in more than 40 cities around the world. The Leo Burnett Cannes Predictions started in 1987 as a modest internal contest for employees.
