DDB scoops network honours at 2008 Epica Awards

LONDON - DDB has emerged as the most awarded network at the 2008 Epica Awards, the European creative awards, marking the fourth year in a row that the Omnicom-owned network has done so.

The network's London agency, DDB London, won two Grand Prix in the TV category for its Volkswagen Polo 'Dog' commercial, and in Press for the Marmite 'LoveHate' campaign. The wins marks the first time in a single year that one agency has won multiple Grand Prix awards.

DDB Germany was the most awarded agency last night with a total of 13 prizes, including an award for its print work on the Volkswagen Navigation System 'That Way' campaign. It was also awarded for its Premiere Pay TV 'Movie Quotes' campaign, and bagged a Technique award for the Ikea 'Prices' campaign.

Michael Bray, President of DDB Europe said: "Naturally, we're thrilled that not only has DDB once again come top of the creative pack, but that this year, we've achieved that goal in such an emphatic way.

"We'll be focusing all our efforts on developing creative work to the same world-beating standards in 2009, as we believe the very best applied creativity is the most effective for our clients' businesses."
