More home success as The Chase scoops Gold at Cannes

Manchester-based agency The Chase has won a Gold Lion for Design at the Cannes Lions festival.

Its 'Almost Extinct' calendar for the BBC Wildlife Fund was one of 31 pieces to be rewarded with Gold at last night's Design Lions awards.

Some 86 Awards were handed out altogether and The Chase also landed a Silver and Bronze for photography for its work for Paul Thompson, 'A Picture Speaks a Thousand Words'.

Fellow British Gold winners were The Partners for Richard House and Moving Brands for All About Tea.

The Grand Prix went to Digital Kitchen Chicago and its digital installation at The Cosmpolitan hotel in Las Vegas.

There was less home interest to cheer at the Press Lions, also held last night.

Out of 99 awards just two went to UK agencies: a Silver for Rainey Kelly Campbell Roalfe/Y&R's Land Rover passport stamps and a Bronze for DDB UK's Harvey Nichols campaign.

The Press Grand Prix was won by JWT Shanghai for Samsonite suitcases.
