The advertising agency won the award for its Lucozade campaign.

The campaign – “Give Me Strength” – features a series of light-hearted radio ads called ‘Teleconference’, ‘Kids Party’ and ‘Enrique Concert’. The ads highlight the rejuvenating effect of Lucozade during those challenging “give me strength” moments we all go through!
