UK IMC Awards winners collect trophies
UK agencies and clients who were recognised in the European IMC Awards 2013 collected their trophies at a ceremony held at the IPM's offices last night.
UK agencies had been the big winners in the IMC European Awards 2013, taking away 19 trophies out of the total awarded, more than any other country.
IPM chairman Becky Munday congratulated all the agencies and their clients, and then presented everyone with the awards they had won.
She also highlighted the large number of UK campaigns which had won trophies in the MAAW GLOBES 2013, the worldwide awards scheme. Many of these campaigns were represented at the ceremony last night.
Only campaigns which have won an award in their own national awards programme are eligible for entry to The IMC Awards. In the UK, the IPM Awards are the only entry route. The IPM Awards 2014 Call for Entries has now gone live, and the Call for Entries brochure is available on the IPM website, www.theipm.org.uk/awards.
