DDB Argentina’s Creative Leaders talk to Adlatina about their Gold Lion win in the Print & Publishing category for their campaign “The Best of the Worst Photos” for Getty Images.

Longinotti, Varela and Piattoni: “Being on the stage at Cannes Lions the best way to start.”

Longinotti shared his thoughts about the industry: “We are in a moment of continued change, which forces us to keep moving. Today the fastest wins over the biggest and having experience can be a disadvantage in today’s world. We need to hire different people with knowledge in technology and who have an exploring mind. Today, everything is different, except for human values”. Jose Longinotti, South Cone’s President at DDB Latina Group.
