In Branded Content & Entertainment there were 63 Lions, however a Grand Prix was not awarded.

Jury President, David Lubars, Chief Creative Officer, BBDO Worldwide, said that this year the jury had been unable to find "a unique element that we will still be talking about in 10 years' time," which he attributed to the developing nature of the discipline. "The lack of Grand Prix demonstrates that this is a maturing industry where advertisers and agencies are still learning how to make credible branded content."
