And Now, Your 2012 ANDY Award Winners

By Kiran Aditham 

Once again, let’s eschew the drumroll and just get on with it. As you read this folks, we will be making our way to the ANDY Awards, which are taking place some place in midtown Manhattan. As embargo demands, we had to wait until this particular witching hour to bring you the big winner list, and topping it all with the Best in Show Grandy is CAA Marketing and Chipotle for their “Back to the Start” work. Guess a little reworking of Coldplay courtesy of Willie Nelson works wonders, as the animated storytelling project has also already received TED nods earlier this year.

Here are your other winners (and yes, we’ll try to add some pictures and clarification when we’re back and lucid).
