The French Art Directors Club (more dashingly known as Le Club des Directeurs Artistiques), along with Corbis and Cart'Com (an advertising postcard distributor) recently held an exhibition of the prizewinning work from the competition known as Les Créatifs derrière l'objectif
— "Creatives behind the camera." All communications creatives and French ADC members were invited to send their personal or professional photographic work to a jury composed of members of the ADC, Corbis and Cart'Com. There were more than 350 entries, of which the winning 35 were exhibited at a New Year's party organized by the French ADC at the Palais de Tokyo in Paris last month. The "best of" photo exhibit ran at Paris agency BETC Euro RSCG earlier this month, and the winning images will be issued on several thousand postcards and distributed in the Parisian Cart'Com network, which includes many of the city's bars, restaurants, cafes, brasseries and gyms.
