35 campaigns including BHF's 'You've been Vinnied' and Sainsbury's 'Christmas in a day' shortlisted for 2014 IPA Effectiveness Awards

A total of 35 campaigns, including Aldi’s ‘Swap and save challenge’; BHF’s ‘You’ve been Vinned’ and Sainsbury’s ‘Christmas in a day’, have been shortlisted for this year’s IPA Effectiveness Awards.

Judged by a panel headed up by Lord Davies of Abersoch, CBE, the 2014 IPA Effectiveness Awards will be handed out at a black-tie gala on Monday 27 October at the London Hilton Park Lane.

Joining Lord Davies on this year’s judging panel were Lorna Hawtin, disruption director, TBWA Manchester and Bridget Angear, joint chief strategy officer, AMV BBDO, who assumed the roles of convenor and deputy convenor of judges respectively.

Of the shortlisted campaigns, Lord Davies said they “provide absolute proof of the transforming power of communications to a business’s bottom line”. He added: “For anyone looking for invaluable insights into how to turn a creative idea into commercial success, look no further than these exemplary cases. Congratulations to all those who have made it onto this prestigious list.”

Hawtin remarked that the judges were “seriously impressed by the breadth of entries this year”.

The 2014 Awards are sponsored by Thinbox with chief executive Lindsey Clay, claiming that to be shortlisted is “almost an award in itself”.

She commented: “It [being shortlisted] means that these campaigns have worked and worked brilliantly. They are the benchmark by which other advertising should be judged and I wish them all every success on Awards night. No awards come closer to what Thinkbox is about than these and we are proud to have been their sponsor for ten consecutive years.”
