There are less than two weeks to go before the big kick-off of the
CampaignLive Fantasy Agency League. So, if you haven’t signed up yet,
get your skates on. The first points will be awarded on Monday, 12 April
after the presentation of the Campaign Direct Awards. The first monthly
prize of a case of Laurent Perrier will be given to the best performing
agency in April. And remember, the overall winner will get a week’s
holiday for two, anywhere in the world where our sponsor, DoubleClick,
has an office.
Last week, we gave you a preview of the agency selected by Campaign’s
editor, Stefano Hatfield. Here, we present a further insight into the
minds of those behind our illustrious title, with news editor John
