Y&R Takes Home Big Wins from Clio Awards 2018

Oct 03, 2018

At this year’s 2018 Clio Awards in New York City, we celebrated winning teams across our global network. Together Y&R and VML brought home a Grand Clio, one Gold, eight Silver and six Bronze awards.

The night’s big winner, VML Kansas City accepted Grand and Gold Clio Music awards for Wendy’s “We Beefin,” a five-track mixtape pulling lyrical punches on competitors like McDonald’s. The campaign was also a Bronze winner in the PR category.

Y&R Melbourne and Monash University “Sip Safe” won Silver in Product design for “Sip Safe,” a wristband that protects students against drink spiking by detecting drugs with a simple drop of liquid. The work continues its momentum from Spikes Asia, where it recently won Grand Prix in Health.

Y&R Dubai’s work for Varuna Pumps “Life Saving Scarecrow” landed two Silver awards in Out of Home and Brand Design. The campaign replaced ordinary scarecrows with an innovative design that reduces lightning-strike casualties of agricultural workers in rural India.

Y&R Prague also won three awards including a Silver in Film for Post Bellum “Untold Stories,” as well as two Bronze awards Erste Bank “Village of Neratov” and Reporter Magazine “Questioning Neo-Nazism.”
