PHOTOS: Cannt Crufts Dog Show at Queen of Hoxton

The world’s most important creative advertising festival, Cannes Lions, kicked off this week on the golden sands of the French Riviera. While the lucky few guzzle champagne on super yachts and congratulate themselves on their collective genius, those who didn’t blag an invite have banded together to host the equally as amazing (sort of) Cannt Festival.

As part of this week-long London-based festival of fun, Cannt hosted their annual Cannt Crufts Dog Show at the Queen of Hoxton rooftop in Shoreditch on Tuesday night. This inter-ad agency battle saw cool and crackers canines go snout-to-snout in agility, best dressed, tricky pup and Best in Show.

Here comes the bride

Getting slightly caught up in the action, our very own George was a last-minute entry. Despite having no get-up for the costume round, he did manage to get around the agility course (in the slowest time and with four failed attempts in the tunnel), however the judges were so impressed with his sheer determination and lack of treats as a bribe that they gave him a rosette anyway – GO ON OUR BOY!
