WMH also picked up a silver for its Seemed Like a Good Idea at the Time work for itself, while silvers also went to Manchester-based The Chase Creative for its brochure for Manchester and Cheshire Dogs Home, CHI & Partners for its work around Carphone Warehouse’s sponsorship of the X-Facto, and Bristol-based Taxi Studio for its branding and packaging work for Willie’s Cacao.

Bronze awards went to The Chase Creative for its Never Forget a Face work for the BBC Wildlife Fund, Freestate for its Sony@IFA 2008 work, and The Partners for its packaging and branding for Mr Singh’s Bangras sausages.

The Grand Prix Award went to McCann Worldgroup’s Hong Kong office for its Paper Battlefield work for Nike Hong Kong.
