CAMPAIGN DIARY:

Those of you who criticised the venue for D&AD’s annual awards should think yourselves lucky that you weren’t invited along to this year’s Golden Drum international advertising awards in Portoroz, Slovenia.

Those of you who criticised the venue for D&AD’s annual awards

should think yourselves lucky that you weren’t invited along to this

year’s Golden Drum international advertising awards in Portoroz,

Slovenia.



While we thought that the organisation of the awards was excellent and

very well attended, whose idea was it to hold the ceremony outside?

However warm Slovenia is in the daytime, the temperature plummets to

around 120C at night. Certainly if you were the lady in the strappy

dress and pashmina shawl in front of us, you would agree that next year

it needs to be indoors.



The cold obviously got to a couple of the winners too. The walkway to

the stage to collect awards was constructed upon a small shallow lake

and two creatives, on separate occasions, opted to splash several yards

through the water before realising they should be walking on the

walkway.



Come back Olympia, all is forgiven
