Back in 2010, CNN won a Gold Lion in Media for a campaign called ‘Go Beyond Borders’. It was the first time the brand had won Gold, and also the first Gold that a young creative called Myles Lord won.

Myles Lord is now the Managing Creative Director of DDB Berlin. You can check out the work he has won Lions with in the years since his CNN victory in the Cannes Lions Archive.
