Thinkbox’s 2018 Tv Planning Awards Honors Innovation And Commercial Use Of Audiovisuals In Television

The Thinkbox 2018 TV Planning Awards consists of twenty judges, specializing in various fields such as marketing, media, productions, sales, commercial and design, whose job is to evaluate innovation, entrepreneurship, creativity and the use of television in a commercial manner.This year, the biggest winners of the ceremony were Age UK and Manning Gottlieb MOD.

So what’s the secret to their success in commercial marketing, and in the audiovisual world? Undoubtedly, it’s their commitment to creating new and improved content. Indeed, their products demonstrate dedication and specialized work, resulting in quality content. They are not afraid to take risks, nor are they afraid to invest in their commercials.

Thanks to "Breaking the Last Taboo", a commercial by Age UK and Manning Gottlieb OMD, the companies managed to obtain two of the most prestigious prizes, the Grand Prix and Best Use of Content. It is no coincidence that these English agencies also maintain daily contact with their users through social networks, and that they load a great variety of content on their Youtube channel, which gives them a definite advantage.

Manning Gottlieb OMD also won the award for Best Use of Television Innovation for their work for Specsavers, and another in the optimal use of "TV And" category in a piece for Virgin Trains.
