Grupo W Wins A Gold Statue, JWT Mexico City Wins A Gold and Silver Statue
(London, November 10, 2008) – Two agencies in Mexico were recognised for their superior entries to the 2008 London International Awards held at the Hippodrome this evening. Now in its 23rd year, London International Awards continues to honour excellence in advertising, design and digital media.
Grupo W won a Gold Statue for their entry 'Showdown Interactive' for One Show Interactive in Digital Media
JWT Mexico City won a Gold Statue for their entry 'Rearview/Tricycle' for Ford Expedition in Automotive, Print and a Silver Statue for 'Rearview/Kitten' also for Ford Expedition in Automotive, Print.
"These agencies competed in categories where the stakes are very high. Winning in both Digital Media and Print says a lot about the standard of work in Mexico," remarked Barbara Levy, President of London International Awards. "We are very pleased with these results and hope to see more work from Mexico next year."
Of the 17,969 total submissions from 81 countries, only five percent (5%) reached Finalist status. From that elite group, 1.4% attained Silver status and only 0.7% 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.
