Judges said: “This was an innovative campaign that took the difficult scenario of nothing to show and used multi-media and motion graphics to enhance media content and gain a huge amount of quality media attention in the build up to a new rollercoaster ride being ready for launch. A very effective use of the budget and clear measurable results on media coverage.”

It was one of a hat-trick of achievements for Rule 5 with the agency’s work with premium cycling brand Fat Lad At The Back also recognised in the Best Community Relations and Best Sport, Art and Culture categories.  Both saw the agency presented with silver awards.

Speaking on the success Rule 5 Founding Director Jules Wilson said:  “We’re incredibly proud of the work we deliver for our clients.   To have that work recognised by your industry peers is however fantastic.  The calibre of entries shortlisted this year was exceptionally high and we’re thrilled to have received three accolades.”
