SILVER AWARD



Title: Two hours and a million miles away



Agency: FCA!



Client: Gillian Berntsen, UK marketing manager, Wales Tourist Board



Creative Directors: Ian Harding, Shaun McIlrath



Art Director: Justin Tindall



Copywriter: Adam Tucker



Agency Manager: Verity Williams



Breaking with a 60-second TV ad supported by posters, tube cards and

cross-tracks, the advertising depicted a Welsh haven away from the dirt

and stress of inner-city life. When the campaign spread to magazine

inserts, targeted mailings and leaflets, it was established enough to

introduce some nifty guerilla marketing, including the award-winning

dirty vans.

Agency: BBH Unlimited



Client: Terry Slade, customer communications manager, Audi UK



Creative Directors: Steve Stretton, Will Awdry



Art Director: James Pearson



Copywriter: Simon Antenen



Agency Manager: Kevin Doherty, account director



By replicating - and effectively hijacking - the styles of the

newspapers and magazines in which they appeared, the ads drove home the

campaign’s proposition of finding a needle in a haystack.

of The Avengers.
