Abbott Mead Vickers BBDO continued its impressive week with two Silvers, both for its Guinness "Bring to life" campaign, while Silvers also went to WCRS for Weetabix, Jack Morton London for Nokia, RKCR/Y&R for its "Breathe" COI spot and Bartle Bogle Hegarty for Johnnie Walker.
BBH picked up an additional Bronze for its "Economy Drive" spot for Audi.
