It's been a successful year for the country, but questions are being raised about awards. It’s been a long, hot week in Cannes, but Canadians are getting energized as we inch closer to a record-breaking year in Cannes. The country has so far picked up 33 Lions – 10 shy of the 43 we brought home in 2015 (though Canada has now beaten its 2013 record of 30 wins). In 2016, Canadian work received a comparatively low 17 wins.
Cannes 2017: Canada receives two nods in Titanium and Integrated Multi-winners Leo Burnett and Cossette earn mentions on the last shortlists of the year. Canada has two remaining chances to add Lions to its 2017 tally, with a pair of this year’s multi-winning campaigns getting nods on the festival’s last (and highly competitive) shortlists. Leo Burnett Toronto received its last nod for 2017 in Titanium for its “Cook This Page” campaign for IKEA Canada.
Swift reaction to a Drake meme helped earn The Young Astronauts Toronto an Entertainment for Music Lion. It’s Wednesday in Cannes. That can only mean one thing. More winners, obviously. This year’s Entertainment Lion for Music winners were announced, with The Young Astronauts Toronto and record label October’s Very Own picking up Canada’s sole win in the category for its work promoting Drake’s album Views.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
