Gorgeous Enterprises wins the award for the BTAA’s most successful
production company for the second year running. In the last year it has
proved that it can maintain a consistent level of outstanding work.
including the widely loved ’Johnny Foreigner’ ad for British Airways.
Director Chris Palmer’s ads for Saatchi & Saatchi’s Bisto campaign have
won various awards, while Frank Budgen’s ’Bet On Black’ for Guinness and
Abbott Mead Vickers BBDO has also achieved notoriety. Gorgeous is not
yet five years old and to win this coveted award for a second year must
be considered a triumph.
How the awards are calculated: the ITV Award is given ten points, gold
awards seven points, silver awards four points and bronze awards two
points. In cases where the same commercial has won more than one award,
only the highest counts. Companies must have won awards for more than
one client to qualify. Previous winners: Gorgeous Enterprises (1999),
Paul Weiland Film Company (1998), Paul Weiland Film Company (1997), Paul
Weiland Film Company (1996), Paul Weiland Film Company (1995), Paul
Weiland Film Company (1994), Limelight (1993).
