Dove, Honda Win Big at LIAA

Ogilvy & Mather U.K.’s “Oversized? Outstanding?” from Dove’s hotly debated “Real Beauty” campaign, wins the grand prize for print at the London International Advertising Awards today. The grand prize for poster and outdoor goes to Ogilvy & Mather in Santiago, Chile, whose Lego posters create the optical illusion that a building is made out of Legos. The Below the Line/Collateral grand prize goes to Taxi in Bristol, England, for Science Museum brochure work called “Serious on the Outside.” Wieden + Kennedy London’s “Grrr,” for Honda U.K., takes top TV prize. And DDB Chicago’s long-running “Real Men of Genius” campaign for Bud Light takes the grand radio award.



Cans Talk it Up in Food Bank Ads

With Hurricane Katrina and other natural disasters getting major press attention, people are suffering from “donation fatigue,” says Walrus co-founder Frances Webster. But she hopes to change that. The 6-month-old New York shop created a pro bono campaign for Food Bank for New York City that takes it easy on emotion. “There’s a lot of donation tug-at-the-heartstring messages out there, and people are getting almost overwhelmed by them,” Webster says. Food Bank ads, in contrast, depict the funny things that cans might think while sitting on shelves. “Everyone knows you’re never going to make chili,” a can of kidney beans says. Copy urges people to donate their canned goods. Wild postings and print are appearing now in New York.
