. June 5, 2009 . 0 Comments

The CLIO Awards, one of the world’s most prestigious international advertising and design competitions honoring creative excellence and innovation in the industry, today announced the winners for the Communications Awards, which recognize Print, Direct Mail, Radio, Poster and Billboard mediums, as well as the new Strategic Communications/Public Relations medium. The Communications Awards were held at The New Joint in the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, Las Vegas on May 12th.

In honor of the monumental 50th Anniversary CLIO Awards, the 3-day CLIO festival featured decade-themed award shows. The Communications Awards celebrated the 1960s with a video montage of the advertising and design techniques that shaped the marketplace during that decade. The show also featured a musical performance by American singer/songwriter Spencer Day, and the presentation of an Honorary CLIO Award to Matthew Weiner, winner of four Primetime Emmy(R) Awards and Executive Producer and Creator of AMC’s MAD MEN. Weiner was recognized as being one of the most powerful storytellers to ever tackle the rise of advertising in America through a critically acclaimed original television series. The show, set in 1960s New York, follows the lives of the ruthlessly competitive world of Madison Avenue advertising executives.
