Some words from our global chief Dave Luhr, who was in Cannes for the advertising awards festival this week:
So last year at Cannes we were awarded Independent Agency of the Year. This year we won the same honor again. That’s big news. But to make things even better, and a bit more confusing, we also won Agency of the Year. So Cannes has both an Independent Agency of the year award and an overall Agency of the Year award – we won both. And we were runner up Direct Agency of the Year. We also won a lot of other awards across a wide range of clients and offices. Proving once again the consistency of our creative product throughout the world.
But even more important than the awards, I can’t tell you how many people came up to us at Cannes and talked about how damn special this agency is. And what a great place it is to work with/for. That’s the award we should be most proud of. So a huge thanks to everyone - in every office - who helped make 2012 yet another strong year for Wieden + Kennedy.
Time to focus on 2013.
