The Cyber Lions category at the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity was disappointing for Indian this year as well. No entry from India could make it to the shortlists.

The number of entries submitted by Indian agencies has decreased with 27 entries submitted this year as compared to 33 last year.

This year, 2458 entries from 59 countries, a decrease of 13% compared with last year, have been submitted. This is due to the introduction of Mobile Lions, entries of which were previously submitted into the Cyber Lions category.
