FP7 Doha to hand back Lynx 2009 awards


Written by Anil George, Thursday, 23 April 2009

Fortune Promoseven has just issued an official statement regarding the recent Lynx controversy, stating, “Fortune Promoseven had committed to thoroughly investigate FP7 Doha’s entries into Dubai Lynx 2009. This internal investigation has now been concluded. It seems our strict policies and procedures for awards entries were circumvented. This is clearly unacceptable to our company. As a strong demonstration of the seriousness with which we view such behaviour, it has been decided that FP7 Doha will hand back all of its awards from the Dubai Lynx festival, and FP7 Doha has also been instructed not to submit any entries to Cannes Lions 2009. Corrective actions are being taken and several staff responsible will part ways with the company. In addition, FP7 Doha is strengthening its policies and procedures to ensure compliance for all future awards entries.” The Dubai Lynx management has endorsed the action, with Philip Thomas, Chief Executive Officer, Dubai International Advertising Festival stating “We have been in communication with FP7 throughout their internal investigation, and we welcome this action. Promoseven’s decision to have FP7 Doha return all awards – including bona-fide winners – shows real intent. Dubai Lynx is about lifting creativity for clients in the region and this action sends a signal to the market that this is what the focus of Lynx will be in the future. We will announce changes to the 2010 entry criteria shortly”.

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.
