Trump, Netflix, Burger King & Specsavers: The Chip Shop Awards 2019 winners revealed (may cause offence)

Trump, Netflix, Burger King, MAC & Specsavers: The Chip Shop Awards 2019 winners revealed

With no rules and no limits, The Chip Shop Awards is the platform where you are encouraged to think outside-the-box.

The ceremony took place at the Ministry of Sound in London last night (June 6). This year's winners tackled hefty topics like Trump, human rights, the Royals, drink driving, the tampon tax and breast cancer.

Said Stephen Lepitak, editor of The Drum: "These awards continue to showcase the right to have a free expression through creativity and while they rarely shy away from potential controversy they also highlight how advertising can shine a light on matters that society must be aware of and of just how advertising ideas can be impactful too."

Seeing is believing, so check out the 40+ Chip winners below. The easily offended should look away now.
