Forget Colin at the Oscars, the real British talent lies right here in Canary Wharf. Leaving no time for the dust to gather, we can once more get out the gowns, fix the bow ties and get ready for another exciting awards season. It’s true; last year was record-breaking but this year is exceptional. As just recognition for a fantastic year, Ogilvy PR London has secured 4 nominations, 4 Certificates of Excellence and a win in the Bronze and Iron category for this year’s prestigious EAME SABRE Awards.
Did you ever want to be sitting perspiration distance from Roger Federer as he served a final and lethal ball at Andy Murray? Well, IBM tasked Ogilvy to make that experience as real as possible for the masses that didn’t get seats around the hallowed Wimbledon turf, allowing them to literally see through walls with the new augmented reality app. Already recognised across the spread of marketing and communications industry bodies, Ogilvy’s IBM seer campaign has won a bronze and iron SABRE, two Certificates of Excellence and is up for best ‘Digital and Social Media: Digital Campaign’. In a world where every agency is moving towards a digital and social future Ogilvy London are pushing new boundaries, redefining digital limitations and getting clients great results into the bargain.
But, forget Facebook for a moment as other equally brilliant work is being carried out across our office. What can Kazakhstan offer the people of Ireland? A new model for dealing with distressed economies and making creditors pay their share. Ask the Economist, Guardian, Financial Times, the Daily Telegraph and now the Holmes Report. Ogilvy has already received a ‘Best in Media Placement’ certificate for this at the SABRES and a further nomination in the Financial Communications category.
Other stand out campaigns to be nominated in the EAME Practice area categories are our work with FremantleMedia and GROHE in the ‘Trade Show’ category. Certificates of Excellence have also been awarded for TomTom in ‘Media Placement: Television’
An excited UK Office Head Ross Cathcart beamed ‘This year’s nominations – and a win to boot – are hopefully just the beginning of recognition for a London team which pushes boundary’s, creates ground breaking campaigns and burns the midnight oil to get it done.’
We’ve got our fingers crossed for the awards ceremony to be held at the impressive Prague Castle in May. And unlike Cinderella, we shall go to the ball. Let’s just hope the slipper fits.
