shots Awards Winners 2012
The first shots Awards event and party took place at London’s May Fair Hotel last night. And the winners are...
After months of shortlisting sessions, emails, calls and meetings with our judging panel, the shots Awards 2012 finally took place last night at London’s May Fair Hotel. It was, as predicted, a roaring success with a lot of dancing into the early hours as EMI Sync artists entertained the ad elite.
The night kicked off with a champagne reception in the Quince Salon before guests descended into the May Fair theatre where a short and sweet prize-giving ceremony, hosted by T4’s Georgie Okell, commenced.
The Wieden office was also crowned Agency of the Year and delivered an acceptance speech featuring a number of its employees via video (above).
Director of the Year went to Ringan Ledwidge of Rattling Stick for work including The Guardian Three Little Pigs, Barnardo’s Life Story and Axe Susan Glenn. Editor of the Year was awarded to Ledwidge’s cutting partner at Work Post London, Rich Orrick.
Online Checkout for Google won Best Branded Short by Across the Pond and New Director of the Year went to Ben Liam Jones and Andy Hunter for their NSPCC/Childline film, It Follows Me Around.
Our Twitter Audience Award was won by BBH London and Rattling Stick's Three Little Pigs for The Guardian, which received over 50 per cent of the total votes.
Music at the after party came from EMI band The Good Natured, who performed an exclusive live set, and DJs Dan & Kyle from Bastille and Right Click Save As. Good luck with nursing the hangovers, thanks for making it great and see you all again next year for a bigger, better party.
