CP+B Takes Top Honors At O'Toole Awards

SCOTTSDALE, AZ - Creative poster child Crispin Porter + Bogusky added yet another honor to its heavily laden awards portfolio, taking home the 2006 American Association of Advertising Agencies' O'Toole Award for Creative Excellence in the large-agency category.

The awards, which were handed out at the AAAA's Management Conference for Agency CEOs here, honor across-the-board excellence at an agency. Agencies are judged based on multiple campaigns for multiple clients, not one outstanding effort for a particularly bold client.

Crispin's winning work included television spots for Burger King, Miller and the Gap, an outdoor execution for Virgin Atlantic, and a print ad for the Miami Ad School.

DDB and Cramer-Krasselt finished second and third, respectively, in the category honoring agencies with more than 300 employees.
