Advertising, Festivals, Golden Drum

 McCann Erickson Romania and Saatchi&Saatchi Bucharest were the first Romanian agencies awarded at this year’s edition of Golden Drum, during the Single Channel Awards Gala.

McCann Erickson Romania got 2 important awards: Gold & Grand Prix in Digital for Romanians are Smart (Rom).

It is an important Grand Prix because it was awarded within a strategic category for us, Digital. We are happy Rom continues the series of awards and gives us strong sensations in all festivals it is present in

We won Grand Prix and Gold for digital, the only segment for which media investments increased in 2012. So we think we are already pretty well prepared to satisfy clients’ more and more intense interest for this area

Saatchi&Saatchi Romania was also awarded during the 1st Golden Drum gala, receiving a Silver for “Braveheart”, part of the “Motivational GPS” campaign (Client: Toyota). The awarded execution was shortlisted within Radio category, together with the other 2 executions of the campaign, 300 and Gladiator.


We’re very happy with this prize as it awards our long lasting relationship with Toyota and the creative ideas.

Also, in Single Channel, representatives of Golden Drum, Golden Drum Competition Council and President of the Single Channel Jury decided to disqualify shortlisted entries from Ogilvy&Mather Hungary (in Print and Putdoor), as they received written statements from representatives of the Hungarian national creative festival Arany Penge identifying the executions as scam ads.
