We’ve won the Belfast Advertising Agencies league – again

Championi, championi.. or whatever it is they sing on Match of the Day.

Hats off to Michael Stewart and Mark Heaney (the Gerard Houllier and Sammy Lee of the agency) for their hard work and astute management in guiding our Fantasy Football team to another runaway success in the Belfast advertising agencies league. They’ve proved they’re a class act. But then, we knew that anyway.

The trophy stays in the offices of Elm House Creative for the third year in a row.

Advertising Agencies’ big night in Belfast

We all got dressed up recently and went out to see if we had won any awards. And whattya know? We actually got some, including a GOLD for one of Brian’s TV ads – and one of Steve’s own lovely press campaigns scooped a GOLD too.

That, of course, is a potted version of a wonderful night we spent at the PANI Awards in Belfast’s new Titanic Building – a night when the great and good of Northern Ireland advertising (and us too) all came out in their best bib and tucker to see who won what.. and then work on the next day’s hangover.

Seriously though, it was a splendid night and a great chance to meet up with people we don’t seen enough of – ‘cos we’re all so darned busy.

Here’s some embarrassing photos:

No, the Moody Blues haven’t announced a comeback. That’s Jeremy, Brian, Steve and Michael looking all cool and intense.

Brian picks up the first of his two gongs on the night. In the background, Paddy Kielty successfully tries to ignore him.

Steve, right, easily wins the battle of the hairstyles as he picks up a richly deserved Gold for his work on his own Steve Blair Creative campaign for No Alibis Bookstore (the finest Bookstore in Belfast might we add)

Two old geezers are caught chatting when they should have been smiling at the camera. That’s Brian on the right with the Gold for our TV campaign for Stamp Out Stigma, which featured Andrea Corr, Sinead O’Connor, Larry Mullen of U2, John Rocha and Eamonn Dunphy. With a cast that good, how could we go wrong?

Watch this please, it’s brilliant – especially the bit about Shreddies
