Ad awards season is in full swing and one of the industry’s top shows, The One Show, handed out its citations in New York last night. Among the winners, one person stood way above the rest. Because she’s 25-feet tall. Little Marina, the animatronic blogging giantess, nabbed Best of Show honors for Target and agency Mother New York at One Club's award show, which celebrates the year’s best offerings in creative advertising. Marina was created as part of a Fashion Week promo for the Missoni collection at Target. "She" was a giant, fashion-obsessed doll who recorded her thoughts about style on a blog.
A total of 115 Gold, Silver, and Bronze Pencils were awarded overall, representing 26 countries. Here’s some of the best from the winners from the One Show main show (check out the full list of winners at the One Club site). One Show Interactive winners are announced May 11.
