OMD and UM share big prizes at Festival of Media Global Awards 201619.05.2016
OMD has been named Agency Network of the Year, while UM Romania was awarded Agency of the Year and Campaign of the Year, at the Festival of Media Global Awards 2016.
The winners were announced today (19 May) at the lavish Rome Cavalieri, with OMD collecting a total of 11 trophies across six offices representing eight different brands.
UM’s Romania office had a particularly successful afternoon, picking up Gold, Silver and Bronze trophies across seven categories, as well as the highly coveted Campaign of the Year trophy for its campaign ‘Sunday Grannies’.
The final jury was split across two judging rooms, chaired by Allan Soares, Harley Procter brand director at Procter & Gamble and Nick Graham, global digital marketing director, Huawei Technologies respectively.
Soares said: “Chairing the jury of such high-calibre professionals and reviewing such high quality work was energising and a true privilege. The quality of work submitted proved that the industry is in good shape and well poised to embrace the challenges that lie ahead. It was also a great personal learning experience.”
Graham added: “The range of work submitted this year was truly impressive, with highlights in categories like ‘The Best Insight Award’, ‘Best Campaign for Commerce’, and perhaps surprisingly, ‘Best Not-for-Profit’. The jury team did an amazing job in getting through over 100 submissions and, most importantly, in getting to the key media issues and opportunities we’re facing today.”
