A winning week for We Are Social
It’s been another big week for We Are Social. With a handful of nominations in both the 2014 Content Marketing Awards and the Social Buzz Awards for our work with clients like F&F, evian and adidas as well as for the agency itself, we were hoping our awards shelf would be a little more crowded come Friday.
We got off to a good start on Wednesday, as the adidas team’s World Cup work, #allin or nothing, picked up Best Travel & Leisure Campaign at the Content Marketing Awards, while evian’s Amazing Baby Rescue Me was highly commended in Best Non-Retail Consumer.
And the Travel and Leisure winner at the #cmaawards2014 goes to Adidas and @wearesocial for #Allinornothing

So, given this success along with the amazing year we’ve had so far already, we arrived at last night’s Social Buzz Awards feeling hopeful. After a decent dinner, a very surreal musical experience and the quick realisation that the sponsor-branded stress balls were ideal missiles to aim at the host, the awards kicked off. First success of the night was our Summer SOS campaign for F&F, picking up Best Retail/e-commerce campaign.

adidas: #allin or nothing was shortlisted for two accolades – Best Travel/Leisure and Best Integrated campaign; and picked up two out of two. Then, the campaign was awarded the Grand Prix, for the best of the best. The judges described the campaign as “incredible team effort, a fantastic body of work, and a commercial edge to its approach that outshone anything else in the competition”.

The night was nicely finished off with recognition not just for individual, outstanding campaigns but for all the work that’s been done across the whole agency over the last year, as We Are Social picked up Agency of the Year.

And if that wasn’t enough, we even picked up James Whatley’s highlight of the night. OK, that’s not an official award, but we’re counting it anyway.
Well done to @TheDrum for tonight’s #socialbuzzawards. Personally, it was great to see @wearesocial pick up for the Adidas World Cup work.
