TWO DANISH ADVERTISING AGENCIES WIN AT PRESTIGIOUS
LONDON INTERNATIONAL AWARDS 2007
One Entry Captures Gold Statue, One Wins Silver Statue
(London, November 12, 2007) – Two Danish advertising agencies were recognised for their superior entries to the 2007 London International Awards held at the Hippodrome this evening. Now in its 22nd year, the London International Awards honours excellence in advertising, design and digital media.
Two entries from Denmark in the mediums of Poster & Outdoor and Print have been chosen as Gold and Silver Statue winners. Six entries in total from Denmark reached Finalist status.
Saatchi & Saatchi’s entry “Save Paper, Save The Planet” for the World Wildlife Foundation was honored with a Gold Statue in Poster & Outdoor. Uncle Grey’s submission “Tarzan” won a Silver Statue in Print for WWF.
Of the 17,660 submissions, only eight percent (8%) reached Finalist status. Of those elite selections, 1.4% attained Silver status and only 0.5% were awarded Gold Statues. The vast number of submissions reflects the prestige and explosive growth of the London International Awards since its inception in 1986 when 2,600 submissions were considered.
“It is clear that Denmark is still producing some very sophisticated work that is impacting the advertising industry as a whole,” said Barbara Levy, President of London International Awards. "As an organization devoted to acknowledging creative endeavours, we feel privileged to highlight the tremendous talent that is consistently showcased by Denmark."
