2016 ICAD Awards Ceremony

The 2016 ICAD Awards took place in Vicar Street on June 2nd. This was no ordinary year with a total of 101 bells awarded. These spanned across a wide variety of categories, all deserving.

Most notably, there were seven gold awards. These went to:

Irish International won gold for ‘Guinness: John Hammond, Intolerant Champion’ in Art Direction / Production Design Single (Film) and for ‘RSA: Don’t Look Back’ in TV Commercial (over 30 seconds).

Guns or Knives won gold for ‘Introducing the Heterophobic Taxi Driver’ in Activation/Experiential.

Rothco won two golds for ‘Shred of Decency’ in Creative for Change and Earned Media Campaign.

Finally, Chemistry won two golds for ‘Irish Examiner- Jonah Lomu Tribute’ in Earned Media Campaign and Press Consumer. Hugh O’Connor, one of the creatives behind the piece also won the 2016 greenhorn award.

Our annual greenhorn and client awards went to Hugh O’Connor of Chemistry and Hailo respectively.

The agency who took home the highest number of bells was Boys and Girls. Other winners included Publicis Dublin, Atelier David Smith, Cawley Nea\TBWA, Piranha Bar, The Public House and WorkGroup.

ICAD bells are extremely hard won. You can browse all of the winners on our Awards Gallery.

Congratulations to all involved and a huge thank you to all of our supporters, sponsors and friends. It is because of you that ICAD can champion indigenous creative excellence.
