IAPI Announces Effie Advertising Awards

Multiple awards for The Brill Building

24 Sep 2021 | 07.35 am

IAPI has announced winners of the Effie Awards Ireland 2021, which celebrate high quality creativity in advertising.

Only 7 Gold, 12 Silver and 12 Bronze Effies were announced across 22 categories.

IAPI chief executive Charley Stoney commented: “Effie Awards Ireland has provided the Irish advertising and marketing industry with their first ever opportunity to pitch themselves against their peers globally. Every Gold winner this year can now enter both Euro Effie Best of the Best and Global Effie Best of the Best in 2022.”

The Brill Building agency secured the best result for any shortlisted campaign, winning two Gold Awards and one Silver award.

The agency says it is pioneering a new creative-led model. Using a dedicated project team, they work with a group of freelance talent in support, from creatives to digital strategists and production experts, specially selected as the team around each project.

The Brill Building has its headquarters in the West of Ireland, and a Dublin office, and the agency is currently developing the European positioning for fitness chain Curves.

Founder and CEO Roisin Keown, former DDFH&B/JWT Head of Creative, commented: “These Effie wins feel like Shamrock Rovers winning the Champions League for our team. Our instinct since we started has been that there’s room for more than one model of agency in the market.

“With The Brill Building, we’re providing a choice of how to work and achieve success for our clients and the amazing talent we work with. We believe creative excellence is effectiveness, and these wins give us confidence that we’re on the right track – with a unique way of approaching business problems, rooted in a strong consumer insight and working in partnership with our clients as one team.”

The awards programme is supported by RTÉ Media Sales, An Post Commerce, Pluto, Wide Eye Media and Twitter.
