R/GA and Beats, Spotify and Uber Scoop Up Golds in the Clio Music Awards

MasterCard, Prettybird, TBWA also win

Beats by Dr. Dre work has dominated the second annual Clio Music Awards, with R/GA winning four golds, and Sony Music a fifth, for their work on behalf of the headphones brand.

The five golds went to two campaigns—"LeBron Re-Established 2014," which won three, and "The Game Before the Game," which won two. The campaigns both won in the Film and Use of Music categories (with "LeBron Re-Established 2014" winning twice in the latter designation, as it was entered there by both R/GA and Sony Music).

Elsewhere, Spotify and Uber won two golds for their collaboration on "Your Ride. Your Music." And MasterCard also won two golds for its "Priceless Surprises" campaign.

The three other golds went to Phear Creative for Kings of Leon's "NachoVision"; Prettybird for Led Zeppelin's "Trampled Under Foot (Brandy & Coke)"; and TBWA\Chiat\Day for Gatorade's "Made in NY."

The Clio Music Awards celebrate excellence in music-industry marketing and advertising. Janelle Monáe, Grammy-nominated singer, songwriter, performer and producer; and Aloe Blacc, singer-songwriter and musician, were among this year's judges.

Clio is announcing all gold, silver and bronze winners this week. Grand Clios will be announced at the Sept. 30 awards gala, which will be held at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City. (Adweek and the Clio Awards are both owned by affiliates of Mediabistro Holdings LLC.)
