BalCannes is taking the best regional agency to Cannes!

All market communication agencies are invited to apply their projects for the BalCannes revue which will, once again, be held in Rovinj as part of Weekend Media Festival. The application deadline is September 1st. The seventh BalCannes edition, which is organized by the Croatian Association for Communication Agencies (HURA) and Weekend Media Festival, will choose the best 25 regional communication projects. The best of the best will receive special jury prizes, the BalCannes lions, while the best regional agency will receive a very special prize – a chance to compete at the Cannes International Festival of Creativity 2019!

Namely, the main prize winner will get the opportunity to apply for the Cannes Lions 2019 competition, because the BalCannes organizers will cover their application fee for one project.

The winner will be chosen by a jury made up of 25 experts, all regional representatives of clients, agencies and journalists. Interesting fact – BalCannes is a rare opportunity for all agencies because they can find out firsthand what each and every one of the jury members – clients, agencies and media – think about their respective projects.

BalCannes is a revue where both small projects and large companies compete amongst each other, but it is also a place where domestic projects as well as projects created for international markets can win awards for the best communication projects for the international market, as well as the prize for the best project realized on the regional market.

We also have excellent news for all who want to apply, such as our 4+1 FREE and 7+3 FREE options. This year, for the first 4 applied projects by one agency, the fifth application is free; which is also the case for seven applied projects by the same agency, who will get three additional free applications. Agencies can apply for the BalCannes revue online at

The region’s largest communication festival will take place from September 20th until September 23rd, at the traditional location, the old tobacco factory in Rovinj. Other than constructive, and sometimes provocative discussions, Weekend Media Festival is also known for its legendary parties. This year will be no different because the festival will feature an amazing musical line-up and parties until the early morning.
