Creativity unleashed: Chip Shop Awards 2015 winners revealed – see them here
The twelfth annual Chip Shop Awards took place for the first time at Proud Camden in London last night, with the show once again recognising some of the most outstanding – and outrageous – ideas in advertising.
With no boundaries or rules to speak of, the Chip Shops, sponsored by Boutique, continues to celebrate inspiring and irreverent ideas that otherwise would probably never see the light of day.
This year the grand prix went to The Agency for an ingenious campaign that blurs real life with the toy world for model train maker Hornby.
And the chairman's award (chosen by industry and Chip Shops legend John Jessup) was handed to young creative team Dragos Giol and Khurram Hussain, of Falmouth University, for their 'It Sucks to be Last' idea for Virgin Active Gym.
You can see their winning work, and a selection from the other categories, in our gallery below. The winners (chips) and runners-up (vinegars) in every category can be viewed at the chipshopawards.com.
