It’s time that time of year again, when agencies start clearing some shelf space as the nominations for the Roses Advertising Awards are announced. Each year, the finest talents in the ad industry highlight the work that has helped boost their clients’ businesses, raise brand awareness and sell products over the past 12 months. And 2007’s awards have seen even more entries than ever before.

Billy Mawhinney, creative director of the award-winning London advertising agency Leo Burnett, chaired the judging panel, which comprised of Mustoes’ John Merriman; freelance creative Nick Welch; Nick Wray of

J Walter Thompson; Creative Matters’ Patrick Collister; Daniel Healy, head of production at Lucid; and Paul Moran, head of art at Delaney Lund Knox Warren.

With the unenviable task of having to distinguish the best creative work to have been produced by UK agencies based outside the M25, Mawhinney and co set about their challenge on 7 and 8 February at the Crowne Plaza, Glasgow. The resulting nominations are proof that some of the best agencies in Europe are plying their trade in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Manchester, Leeds and Bristol. Not only that, but the work shows that there are clients out there willing to let agencies be bold and innovative with the concepts they deliver.

Scotland, as ever, had a large share of the nominations, with The Union, The Leith Agency, Newhaven and The Bridge all picking up a number of nominations. Also representing Scotland at the awards are Barkers, Family, Dog Digital, SO Creative, Frame, GRP, Navigator and 1576.

The adverts displayed on these pages are just a small selection of the work that has been nominated by the judges. To see a full list, visit and click through the events window.

The awards ceremony itself, at the Hilton, Manchester, on 20 April, promises to be a night to remember. To book tickets or for more information, contact Katy Thomson at or call 0141 559 6062.
