Eightytwenty was the only agency to win a coveted gold bell award at the ICAD Awards which were held in Vicar Street last night, May 28th.
The digital agency picked up its gold award for its “Tinder Hack” campaign for the Immigration Council of Ireland. It also picked up a silver award for the same campaign.
“We’re over the moon with having been awarded not just a gold but also a silver bell for our Tinder campaign for the Immigrant Council of Ireland. It’s fantastic to see that ICAD are rewarding creativity within such a developing space, and encouraging to see how an Irish agency can create such international publicity for a cause behind the campaign that is very close to our hearts,” says Alexis Bouckaert, creative director at eightytwenty.
The only other gold on the night was awarded to Detail Design Studio its work on the An Post Science series of stamps.
A total of 14 silver awards and 64 bronze were handed out on the night. Rothco picked up three silvers while Boys & Girls picked up two silvers. The only other ad agency to win a silver was Cawley Nea/TBWA. Other silvers went to Piranha Bar, Mutiny, Leo Byrne, Red & Grey Design, Steve Simpson, Slater and Adrian Fitz-simon.
Most of the other ad agencies won bronze bells on the night with Chemistry making it a clean sweep in the Radio Advertising category with no fewer than four bronze bells.
