The award ceremonies may look a little different, but Covid-19 hasn’t completely stopped the industry from celebrating the very best work that agencies and brands have to offer.
And over the past few weeks, teams from Smarts, Stein IAS and The Gate have all been attending Zoom receptions (still looking smart…on the top half at least) to virtually pick up gongs.
First, Stein IAS and The Gate’s New York office shared a whopping 8 awards between them at ANA Business Marketing ‘ACE Awards’, which recognise the very best B2B work from around the world.
The Gate New York won a Gold and a Silver for the CMA TV campaign, as well as another Gold for their BHP ‘Big Thinkers’ work.
Meanwhile Stein IAS won a Gold for their innovative ‘Post Modernizer’ tool, as well as four silvers for their work on Marshalls, Covance and in-house content campaigns.
Then at the Marketing Society Brave Awards last week, Smarts’ Diageo Bar Academy activity triumphed in the Business to Business category!
It’s fantastic to see recognition for great work, even in such strange times. Congratulations to all the teams involved!
