Clear Channel: won Commercial Team of the Year

Clear Channel UK has won Commercial Team of the Year during the first day of the Campaign Media Awards 2021.

In a virtual ceremony hosted by the comedian and actor Doc Brown this afternoon, the media owner claimed the award after a year in which it outperformed its outdoor competitors with a clear strategy, innovation and purpose.

The judges said it was amazing to see "Clear Channel providing so much support for their clients and still innovating" during what was a tough year for out-of-home.

During the awards ceremony, six different media agencies won two prizes including Dentsu International’s Carat; the independent shop Goodstuff Communications; Omnicom-owned Manning Gottlieb OMD and PHD; and Publicis Groupe’s Spark Foundry and Starcom.

Carat's wins were for Vodafone and Co-op Funeralcare, Goodstuff received accolades for campaigns for Eve Sleep and Yorkshire Tea, and PHD claimed prizes for the British Heart Foundation and HSBC.

Spark Foundry's work for Rail Delivery Group and Jack Daniel's emerged victorious in their categories and activity for Fiat Chrysler Automobiles and Paco Rabanne Invictus delivered success for Starcom.

MG OMD's work for the government was recognised in the Healthcare category and the agency also won the Production Innovation – Media Agency prize.

Channel 4 picked up the Product Innovation – Media Owner award and was also credited alongside Goodstuff for its victory in the Retail – Online & Offline category for Eve Sleep.

In the second part of the virtual ceremony, tomorrow at 4pm, the winners of the Campaign Media Awards Agency Team of the Year and the Grand Prix will be announced.
