London & Partners scoops top prize at Inaugural World Media Awards 2016

The winners of the first annual World Media Awards were announced last night at an exclusive VIP event held at The Ham Yard Hotel in London. The World Media Awards, launched by the World Media Group* give recognition to the advertisers and agencies that are creating the best international content-driven advertising campaigns in the world.

A panel of senior international media experts selected from major brands, agencies and media owners chose seven category winners and one Grand Prix winner from amongst the many entries that poured in from across the globe.

The biggest winner on the night was London & Partners whose ‘Official Guest of Honour’ campaign, created by Brooklyn Brothers, picked up the World Media Awards Grand Prix as well as the World Media Award for Travel & Tourism.  The team are pictured with their awards.

Mary McFarland, World Media Awards judge and Regional Director at Ogilvy & Mather, says, “These awards are extremely timely as they come at a moment when advertising is changing incredibly quickly and content, at the point where creative and media converge, is becoming the ultimate challenge – especially for international campaigns.

“The quality of entries was fantastic, creating a great showcase for brands big and small, consumer-facing and B2B, and demonstrating just how rich, effective and disruptive you can be with content. The London & Partners campaign was a well-deserved win, shining a spotlight on how authenticity and collaboration can create something really inspirational that speaks across borders.”

I’d also like to pay tribute to my fantastic team at London & Partners, The Brooklyn Brothers and the Great Britain campaign for making London’s Official Guest of Honour possible, and showing just how powerful content can be.”
