VMLY&R Takes Home Big Wins from Clio Awards 2018

Oct. 4, 2018

At this year's 2018 Clio Awards in New York City, we celebrated winning teams across the VMLY&R global network. Together Y&R and VML brought home a Grand Clio, one Gold, eight Silver and six Bronze awards.

The night's big winner, VML Kansas City and creative partners, Six Course Inc, accepted Grand and Gold Clio Music awards for Wendy's "We Beefin," a five-track mixtape pulling lyrical punches on competitors like McDonald's. The campaign was also a Bronze winner in the PR category.

Y&R Melbourne and Monash University "Sip Safe" won Silver in Product design for "Sip Safe," a wristband that protects students against drink spiking by detecting drugs with a simple drop of liquid. The work continues its momentum from Spikes Asia, where it recently won Grand Prix in Health.

Y&R Dubai's work for Varuna Pumps "Life Saving Scarecrow" landed two Silver awards in Out of Home and Brand Design. The campaign replaced ordinary scarecrows with an innovative design that reduces lightning-strike casualties of agricultural workers in rural India.

Y&R Prague also won three awards including a Silver in Film for Post Bellum "Untold Stories," as well as two Bronze awards Erste Bank "Village of Neratov" and Reporter Magazine "Questioning Neo-Nazism."
