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.
