Seven Associates, the little-known Leeds agency, has run away with

the top prize at this year’s Roses awards.



Its ’car wash’ spot for Boro TV won the chairman’s prize, presented by

Larry Barker, creative director of BMP DDB. The same agency and client

also won a gold award for best television commercial and a bronze in the

television campaign category.



The Leith Agency took top prize in the TV campaign category for its work

on Drummond Park games.



Despite failing to take the chairman’s prize, Leith again dominated the

awards. This year, it won for a broader sweep of clients than just

Irn-Bru and Tennent’s - the judges’ traditional favourites.



The Drummond Park work also picked up a gold for best low-budget

commercial, while Orangina won silvers for TV commercial, TV campaign

and low-budget commercial.



Faulds, Leith’s traditional rival, picked up just three trophies. Its

Job Centre work landed a silver and a bronze (for best use of

illustration), while its ’young driver’ spot for the Scottish Office won

a bronze in the cinema category.



McCann-Erickson Manchester picked up two gold awards, both for its Marie

Stopes Vasectomy Clinic ’lollipop’ ad. The work won for best direct

response press advertisement and best outdoor poster (mobile).



Wallis Tomlinson picked up golds in two categories - best national press

advertisement and best outdoor poster (static) - for its Subaru ’speed

camera’ ad. The Brahm Agency also won a gold in the outdoor poster

category for its Yorkshire Post Newspapers work.
