McCann Sweeps the ANDY Awards
McCanners received exciting news today with the release of the 2017 International ANDY Awards. McCann NY was awarded “Agency of the Year” and our Field Trip to Mars campaign for Lockheed Martin was awarded the ANDY’s highest honor, the GRANDY. Also, McCann Worldgroup was named “Network of the Year.”
The team from the ANDYs and The Advertising Club were at our offices to celebrate the big wins. The event opened with remarks by McCann North America President Chris Macdonald, who cited all the winning work. In addition to the Field Trip to Mars, our creative work with Godiva and the U.S. Postal Service was also recognized.
Worldgroup Global Creative Chairman Rob Reilly and North American CCO Eric Silver spoke briefly before Advertising Club President & CEO Gina Grillo officially announced each award and presented the agency with the $50,000 prize that accompanies the Grandy.
In a statement, Gina said, “Every few years or so, a campaign comes along that captures something truly innovative and brave, which leads the industry in previously unchartered territory. ‘The Field Trip to Mars’ is such a campaign and sets the bar high in not only the VR category, but in the transportation and creative technology categories as well. For that reason, we are particularly pleased to congratulate McCann New York on its GRANDY win and Agency of the Year honor, and the entire McCann Worldgroup network for earning Network of the Year.”
Thank you to the ANDYS and to The Advertising Club for these amazing honors.
