'Made in NY' Wins a Grand Clio Sports

TBWAChiatDay Los Angeles hit a home run at the second annual Clio Sports Awards last week in Midtown Manhattan by taking home a Grand Clio Sports award for "Made in NY."

The Clio Sports Awards honor creativity in sports marketing, advertising and communications.

TBWAChiatDay LA's "Made in NY" spot for Gatorade starring Derek Jeter won the Grand Clio Sports Award for film. The 90-second spot is Gatorade's epic farewell to the legendary Yankee captain. The Gatorade team also won three more Golds for "Made in NY" as well as a Gold and a Silver for "Sweat It to Get It."

Gatorade also received the inaugural Clio Sports Brand Icon Award, which recognizes one brand that has become a permanent fixture in pop culture.

Additionally, 180LA won a Silver and a Bronze for "Ghost Wave" for their client HP, and TBWAToronto won two Silver awards for "Sledge Hockey," also for Gatorade.

A huge congratulations to all of the winners.

 The World's Best Outdoor Campaigns

Apple's "World Gallery" continues to pick up awards and acclaim around the globe. After proudly picking up the Outdoor Grand Prix Lion at Cannes this year, the campaign from TBWAMedia Arts Lab just nabbed a spot on the Best Outdoor Campaigns 2014-2015 list. "World Gallery" features more than 10,000 installations in 73 cities in 25 countries and is hailed as the "largest mobile photography gallery in history."

Also making the list is the Abrinq Foundation's "Save the Children" campaign from Lew'Lara, which won a few awards, to say the least, in Cannes. The ads depict high-fashion models striking poses in their couture that discretely expose imprisoned children in the clothing  – a very artistic and clever way to show how children become prisoners in developing countries.
