(London, November 10, 2008) – Three Swiss Agencies were awarded Finalist status at the London International Awards 2008. Now in its 23rd year, London International Awards continues to honour excellence in advertising, design and digital media.

Saatchi & Saatchi Simko's United Planet 'Donate Yourself' attained Finalist status in Direct Mail Business-To-Business; Wirz, Zurich's entry Tamedia 'Labor' won in Retail Services, Television/Cinema; and Euro RSCG Switzerland's submission the Zurich Chamber Orchestra 'Roller Coaster' won in Best Use of Music for Television/Cinema.
