Other big US winners on the night included three golds for Miller Lite films by Fallon McElligott, a gold for the Seattle Supersonics campaign by Wongdoody, and gold for the Fox TV campaign by Cliff Freeman and Partners.

The list of gold-winners was notable for the inclusion of several relatively new American ad agency names to the global stage: Wongdoody (for Sonics), Dweck & Campbell (Dial A Mattress), Suburban Advertising (Pet Adoption), and the Kowloon Wholesale Seafood Co (Jack in the Box).

The British had a relatively quiet year with only three golds: Ogilvy & Mather (for Impulse), TBWA Simons Palmer (Sony PlayStation) and BMP DDB (VW "lamp-post"). Hot favourites (Nike "Parklife" and the BBC's "perfect day" won nothing.

The Agency of the Year prize went to DM9/DDB Publicidade (Sao Paolo) ahead of TBWA Chiat Day (Los Angeles) and Almap BBDO Brazil. The Brazilian agencies were helped by a very strong showing in the print section.
