The awarded campaigns:

    • Studycoin (KFC)

    • Bihor Couture (Beau Monde)

  • Deforestation Beat (Virgin Radio)

The other finalists were:

    • Six Pack Album with INNA (Coca-Cola)

From another perspective, the juror one, Victor Croitoru, CEE Strategy Director – IPG MediaBrands explain the importance of those awards:

The judging experience at this level is truly impressive, both when it comes of the level of jury’s competencies and the alert rhythm. Evaluating and debating the best campaigns in the world, centered on brands with international fame or impressive causes, grouped in categories with over 10 finalists, usually a consensus is reached, looking for a strong and relevant insight to the cultural context activated in a surprising manner. The competition is extremely drastic, each category awarding just one prize for one place on the podium.
