The world’s first voice animated story The Snow Fox, and the first voice-activated recipe recommendation service, Jamie Oliver Skill for Amazon Alexa both were winners in the Applications category.
Commenting on the win, Creativepool highlighted: “2016 was a fantastic year for the team at AKQA.

“The agency was diligent to improve the team at the core of the business, by investing twice as much in talent and company culture. AKQA remain active in promoting the welfare of the industry by supporting a number of initiatives including Future Lions which is a competition for global students in line with the Cannes Lions Festival of Creativity.”
