Big Fish at the Sharks

So, I just found out that Leo Burnett was named the top network winner at the Kinsale Shark Awards -- and like a good little PR person, I've run to the blog to tell the world about it. We won a total of 12 awards at the show that is “dedicated to outstanding broadcast creative work.”

The Altoids Chocolates campaign “Banana Hands Edwards/Blowhole Bob/Half Deer Edward” won the national Grand Prix Award in addition to a Gold. (“Half Deer” picked up a Silver, too.) These wins, combined with a Bronze for McDonald’s “Filet ‘O Fish,” made the US agency the most awarded agency at the show. (Another fact that puts a pep in my publicity step.)

The Department of Transport “Moment of Doubt” ad also won multiple awards, a Silver and Bronze. (Have you seen this yet? It's great.)

Other winners included:
o Fiat “Spa”
o Kellogg All-Bran “Construction”
o WWF “Prank”
o Diageo “Australia Fair”
o Fiat Spa “Ikarus”
o Polisan “Bedroom”
o Scuola d'Arte Drammatica Paolo Grassi “Registration is Open”

The event was hosted by Irish comedian Neil Delamere and was attended by a record number of over 350 delegates, representing agencies across the world, as well as the Festival sponsors and invited guests.
