Wowing the global advertising industry...

Creativity Magazine is, and has long been, one of the most sought-after editorial targets for each and every one of my clients. The magazine, its website and emails -- and the editors behind them -- are revered throughout the advertising, design, production, post-production and all related industries. The current issue is called "The Awards Report," and it details the highlights from all the recent major ad-related awards programs from around the world. Interestingly, the editors also used their own alchemy to weight the various awards and to produce their own ranking of the winners. The results put a "#1" next to Alex Bogusky in the Top Creative Directors category, Crispin Porter + Bogusky in the Top Agencies category, Hungry Man's Bryan Buckley in the Top Directors category, and MJZ in the Top Production Companies category. Which prompts me to say, "Wow!" And also, "Congratulations," to all of those honored anywhere in this issue.

For everyone else -- there's always next year. To keep tabs on the upcoming deadlines for major awards programs and ready your own plans of attack, visit Luerzer's Archive's Future Events listing. And for those in the design industry, the TAXI Design Network's Design Competitions listing is a great place to start. As the show business expression goes, "Break a leg!"
