The event called for attendees to be inspired by rock ‘n’ roll icons. As such, the Eventim Apollo hosted Freddie Mercury, John Lennon, Axl Rose and a couple of Slash lookalikes.
Others took a more ‘hot Sandy from Grease’ approach, while those who preferred to stay safe in traditional black tie gave a nod to the theme with eyeliner, skinny ties and quiffed hair.
This year’s revamped awards saw 24 category winners on the night. Television presenter Steve Jones hosted the main ceremony, while entertainment came from Sternberg Clarke’s Beat the Brief winners The Spitfire Sisters, and DJ DL took to the decks for the after party.
J. Walter Thompson (JWT) walked away with a host of gongs, including the Grand Prix, for its work on the Shell Morro da Mineira activation. The campaign also picked up the awards for Best Outdoor Event, Best Global Brand Activation and Outstanding Creative Idea.
