McCann Central picks up SIX pencils at D&AD

McCann Central has made agency history having won an incredible six pencils at this year’s D&AD awards – an award for each category it was a finalist in.

At last week’s awards show, our team picked up an impressive haul of two graphite and four wood pencils. This win was made extra impressive having been the first time that McCann Central was shortlisted at the awards, which are amongst the most prestigious in the creative industry and notoriously difficult to pick up. Vince McSweeney, Chief Creative Officer said: “D&AD is incredibly hard to win. So for all six of our shortlists to land a pencil is an absolutely incredible result. It continues a wonderful build up as we head into Cannes.”
