Heineken scooped the award for its "Legendary Journey" campaign, including TV ads such as "The Date", featuring a suave man arriving at a party.

It comes as the UK outperformed the US in this year's Creative Effectiveness Lions, despite receiving half the number of nominations. Although there were only two UK teams among the 12 nominees, both scooped the prestigious awards.
