Grant McCann Erickson wins 'Campaign of the Year Award'
Grant McCann Erickson won the most coveted award "Campaign of The Year" on Saturday night at the 15th annual SLIM Awards 2004 at the Sri Lanka Exhibition and Convention Centre.
SLIM Awards, the Oscars of Sri Lanka's Advertising was conducted with all the pomp and pageantry that goes with its prestigious image. This year's most celebrated award, coveted by the old timers of advertising as well as the new, was the "Campaign of The Year".
Speaking about the Agency's success, Neela Marikkar, Managing Director, Grant McCann Erickson said, Grants has been in the forefront of the Advertising World and winning Outstanding Awards time and time again in the last few years. I believe that the secret of our success is the winning combination of a great team, a great agency and great clients as in the case of SriLankan Airlines.
Our performance at SLIM Awards has been the highest in the last several years and this winning combination will continue to help us excel and remain firmly at the top. I would also like to say here that this award is a tribute to the founder of Grant Advertising, my father Reggie Candappa who passed away earlier this year. Named the God Father of Advertising, it is his creative genius that formed Grants and he was and will remain the backbone of our Agency".
