One Entry Captures Gold Statue, Four Win Silver Statue

(London, November 12, 2007) – Four Spanish 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.  
Five entries from Spain in the mediums of Digital Media, Print and Television/Cinema have been chosen as Gold and Silver Statue winners.

The four companies that won Gold and Silver Statues include:
Grey Barcelona– two Silver Statues in Television/Cinema
Product/Service: Pilot V Liquid Light
Title: “History of Light”

netthink– one Gold Statue in Digital Media

TBWA\España– one Silver Statue in Print
Product/Service: PSP

Vitruvio Leo Burnett– one Silver Statue in Print

Of the 17,660 submissions, only six percent (6%) 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 Spain 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 endeavors, we feel privileged to highlight the tremendous talent that is consistently showcased in Spain."
