2017-2020: Three Award-winning Years in a Row

We can’t believe it’s nearly March! Already approaching three months into 2020, we thought we would take a moment to look back on the awards we’ve won over the past three years. We’ve had some really outstanding placements win a wide range of accolades across the globe – we couldn’t be more proud of all the partners we’ve worked with and their fantastic work.

For a full list, keep scrolling, otherwise, here are our highlights!

“The Most Precious Gift”

Otto’s 2017 Christmas campaign celebrated humanity’s most precious gift – time. This spectacular piece won an astounding 30 awards, in a variety of categories including, of course, music.

“In The Long Run”

Mercedes’ 2018 short film recounts a beautiful mother-daughter tale, highlighting how family support is irreplaceable. Released on the International Day of Disabilities, the film tells us that strength comes in all forms, and indeed from within. The immaculately executed idea won 34 awards and short-listings.

“FORCE” 

Nike Japan presents FORCE, a film focusing on movement, sound and style. The monochrome advert perfectly syncs our unique hand-clap soundtrack to celebrate the Air Force 1 Collection, with renowned hip-hop dancer Koharu Sugawara.  The clip won 17 times in various award categories across Asia and Europe.

“Ben’s Glasses”

It’s hard to watch Pearle Vision’s heartwarming story of a loving grandson without feeling extremely moved. Possibly one of the best spectacle commercials ever made, Energy BBDO Chicago certainly did an amazing job with an unforgettable 60 seconds, shortlisted for music at the Golden Award of Montreux.

In the past 3 years alone we’ve contributed to 100 award wins across 22 different boards! Fingers crossed 2020 continues similarly.
