Campbell Mithun Esty in Minneapolis and five Atlanta agencies are competing for an estimated $3-5 million creative assignment from cable TV and telecommunications company Cox Communications, according to sources.
The Atlanta agencies were identified by sources as Austin Kelley Advertising, BBDO South, Fitzgerald & Co., Match and Saatchi & Saatchi. The client is conducting the search with help from review consultant Wanamaker Associates in Atlanta. The consultant referred calls to Cox, also in Atlanta, which could not be reached for comment.
The five shops have presented credentials, and two or three will be asked to make final presentations, including speculative creative. Cox has no agency of record.
