MediaCom walked away with 2 Grand Prix Awards - including 'Agency Network of the Year' for MediaCom Latin America and 'Agency of the Year' for MediaCom Colombia - at the Festival of Media LatAm Awards 2016, in a special charity awards gala dinner held last night (November 10) at Turnberry Isle Miami. 

Huawei's 'The Day the Media Ran Out of Battery' campaign, by MediaCom Colombia, was crowned 'Campaign of the Year' in addition to a host of trophies across a range of categories, including Gold for 'The Creative Use of Media Award' and 'Best Launch Campaign', and Silver in the new 'Best Use of Traditional Media' category. 

MediaCom Colombia and Initiative both picked up 10 trophies each, while OMD was awarded five Golds (the most given to one agency). 

The inaugural 'Media Agency Group of the Year' was awarded to IPG Mediabrands, following a string of awards for Initiative offices in Argentina, Colombia, Chile, Peru, Uruguay and El Salvador, and UM in Mexico, Argentina and Puerto Rico across 11 client brands. 

Brazil was the most successful country, securing 10 trophies, four of those won by DPZ&T – which scooped a Gold, two Silvers and a Bronze. Argentina had nine trophies, five of which were taken home by Initiative, and Colombia followed with eight.

The charity event was hosted to raise funds for Save the Children and the relief effort in the region following Hurricane Matthew. 

Jennelle Tilling, CMO, KFC Global, who chaired the awards jury, said: “Latin America is known for being a mobile-first, early-adopting region, and it didn’t disappoint with some particularly strong campaigns that used data, programmatic and social media.

“Competing agencies also proved their innovativeness, for example we saw a billboard that trapped and killed mosquitos, while I loved Huawei’s campaign that interrupted media to prove the benefit of continued service and its longer-life new phone battery.”
