Winning at the D&AD, Clio and BIMA Awards
It’s been a busy year for our team globally, with everything from new office launches to groundbreaking campaigns, and now – to top it off – we’ve got a few more awards to add to our cabinet.
Firstly, our team in Paris were proud to pick up a Graphite Pencil at the D&AD Impact Awards for FIDH’s #StopThisMovie campaign. The campaign centred around a shocking trailer for a fake movie, to raise public awareness about genocide in Burundi.
The team were also awarded a gold award and a Grand Prize at the GP Stratégies des Relations Publics, and scooped a Clio award for the same campaign.

In London, our adidas team got dressed up and headed off to collect a BIMA Award in the Communications and Content category for their work on a campaign for adidas to announce Paul Pogba’s transfer to Manchester United, through a collaboration with UK grime star Stormzy.

And finally, this month the London team received five shortlists for Digiday’s new Content Marketing Awards Europe, along with a whopping 10 nominations for The Drum Social Buzz Awards – including Largest ROI for a Social Campaign, Most Innovative Use of Social, Best Viral Campaign, Best Social Stunt, and Agency of the Year.
Here’s hoping that we’ll end 2017 on a winning note.
