Adweek launches site


The 56th International Advertising Festival opens this weekend in Cannes, France. To cover the proceedings, Adweek is launching a brand-new Cannes site,, where digital editor Brian Morrissey and creative editor Eleftheria Parpis, armed with video cameras, will post news reports and video interviews throughout the week. They'll also be Tweeting their various adventures through their @bmorrissey and @eparpis accounts. In addition, we'll be embedding plenty of Cannes-related stuff from Twitter, Flickr and YouTube in the sidebar. (We'll be rotating people in and out of our live Twitter modules, starting today with the Cyber Lions jury, which is already chatting about the judging process.) To get you in the mood, we've also posted all of the Grand Prix winners in Film and Press from each year since 2000, and are asking you to pick your favorite from each batch. Hope to see you there.
