McCann Erickson won 2 Gold trophies (in Telecommunications Internet & Data for Vodafone – “The Wedding” and in Retail for Dedeman – “Every Change Helps”) and 2 Silver, both for Rom – “American Rom” in Food Products and Media Efficiency). The Grand Effie trophy for Dedeman adds to those.

 

I’ve said before that Romanian advertising needs leadership and that, in economical crisis, winners will be those brands that maintain consistency and continue to innovate. ROM and Vodafone – Wedding are campaign that many considered an experiment when they appeared –  now the Effies are confirming the efficience of those unconventional approaches. Dedeman is a special case, a local client that invested and built a brand during crisis, defying crisis, and here it was rewarded. We are congratulating all our clients for their courageous decisions made in the last 2 years and we are thanking them for being close to us
