Free Fire’s first-ever campaign, The Real Air Drop, was awarded two Silver Lions, turning the game into a reality: Airdrops were made available all over Brazil, in different cities every day. When a digital plane flew by, gamers pointed their phones up to the sky and captured drops that went straight into their in-game wallets, gifting virtual items to Free Fire fans. The app combined users’ geolocation with actual flight data to create the highly awaited moments.

Sonho was awarded a Silver Lion, following Nego Bala’s story as a juvenile detention centre inmate. At age 11, Nego Bala wrote the lyrics for Sonho (meaning Dream). With a sensibility capable of transforming tragedy into poetry and knowledge, the film has the mission of inspiring others never to stop dreaming and showing that talent exists anywhere, what is lacking is equality in opportunities.

Grey was awarded Gold Lions for The Emancipation Loan, Volvo Street Configurator, Fancy Like, A chat away from everything and Jab Jab.

Silver Lions were awarded to Grey for Child Marriage Prevention Loan, A Chat Away From Everything, The Resell Tag, The Pringlesonic Chip, Aquafresh Fotune Telling and Fancy Like and The Emancipation Loan.
