UK agencies have picked up four places in the shortlist for the creative effectiveness category at this year's Cannes Lions.

Abbott Mead Vickers BBDO has been shortlisted for its Mercedes campaign "#youdrive" for the A Class.

The interactive TV campaign invited the audience to drive the story via Twitter, using the hashtag #youdrive.

Meanwhile, Wieden & Kennedy London has a place for "weave your magic", its campaign for Arla Foods/Lurpak, and Ogilvy & Mather is on the 12-strong shortlist for Expedia’s "travel yourself interesting".

Publicis London is another UK agency in the running with its campaign "don’t raise money, make money" for DePaul UK.

Among other shortlisted agencies are Australia’s DDB Sydney and Havas Worldwide Sydney, while McCann Melbourne has received two shortlist places.
