Last year, we bet on innovation within the entire region and that mattered a lot. Winning this prize was one of the most important moments in my career and a confirmation of the fact that, when you work in team and focus on excellence, the results aren’t late to come. We continued on the same road in 2014 and we have very good campaigns, from all over the region, that deserve to win

In 2013, McCann Bucharest was the most awarded agency in Romania at Golden Drum and had an important contribution in network’s results, by winning 8 trophies: 1 Grand Prix, 1 Golden Drum and 6 Silver Drums for Coca-Cola, KFC and ROM.

The fact that we won Network of the Year at last year’s edition of Golden Drum contributed to the reaffirmation of the engagement taken as a network when it comes of creative excellence. The award confirmed yet again the fact that we have a powerful network and extraordinary clients. This year, we wanted to remain at the same level and we are again present in the competition with very good campaigns, developed for big brands all over the region. From Helsinki to Turkey and for clients like Vodafone, Coca-Cola, IKEA, Nestle and Volkswagen, to give just a few examples
