Gallery 18: D&AD Awards - BBC Radio 1

A grainy, grunge-filled ad that no doubt struck the right chord with Radio 1's target audience. Strong on cinematography from the beads of sweat flying across the packed auditorium to close up shots of euphoric faces transfixed by the music. There's also the underbelly of the stage with dripping pipes and water-filled urinals. The combination of music and vivid images communicates a simple strategy well. Don't forget that Radio 1 is a cutting-edge, youth-orientated station.
