Mother has been nominated four times in the Leisure category for its work with both Q magazine and Observer Drugs, while AMV has landed three nominations for its work for COI Communications and Halfords.
Cdp-travissully's hopes rest in the FMCG category with four executions for Gallaher Hamlet Cigars. Hamlet has a history of critically acclaimed radio spots - the brand won its 20th Aerial Award last month for its "fondu" ad.
Other strong performers include Saatchi & Saatchi, BMP DDB, J. Walter Thompson and Bartle Bogle Hegarty, each of which has two nominations.
The final results will be announced at the Aerial Awards 2002 ceremony, which will be held at the Royal Opera House on 12 November. The winners in the five main categories will be decided on the night via an interactive vote by the event's audience, which consists solely of creatives. However, the award for Best Campaign has already been decided by a panel of judges.
There is also a Craft category, which assesses the execution of radio ads. The Craft awards judges vote on three categories: casting, direction and sound design.
