The three simple steps for wining a bronze at Lynx:

1- copy an idea that already exists and had been copied before.

2- download the photo from the stock library.

3- stick a logo of a client (even if it is not your client).

submit and win.

No one is saying that you cant use a close up shot of an elephant; just use it in an original way to express a different idea like the following example.

    Canon scam ad:
    It’s shocking to see, but not surprising coming from Grey Dubai.
    So this is the famous Danny Higgins?! Or maybe his so called Creative Director
    just pulled the wool over his eyes and hoped no one would notice…

ANUBIS was a very old god of the ancient Egyptians, universally worshipped throughout the land and became considered the gatekeeper and ruler of the underworld; the “Guardian of the veil“ he was “Lord of the Cleansing Room” and the opener of the roads of the North. “He observed the weighing of the deceased’s heart against the feather of Maat [Truth] and reported his findings to the jury of the gods.
