El Sol 2017: the digital winners

El Sol is Spain’s and Latin America’s most important Advertising Festival, known internationally as the Latin American Advertising Festival. The first edition was held in 1986 and, since then, for three days each year, the best and brightest in creativity from Spain, Portugal and Latin America come together in El Sol.

Celebrated just weeks before Cannes Lions Advertising Festival, El Sol usually works as a preview of the Spanish and Latin American campaigns that will be awarded with a Lion.

All the winners of El Sol 2017 can be seen, categorized, at the festival’s site, but let me focus on the digital winners I’ve loved (plus one, integrated classic of Spain’s advertising, often internationally awarded: the Christmas Lottery campaign).
