An evening of excellence The best ad campaigns of the year have been selected in the Gramia 2001 awards, organised by The Grocer. Winners across a range of different media categories including trade press, national press and TV and cinema have been announced, and also for the first time this year the top agencies across the spectrum of media disciplines have also been recognised. The Golden Gramia awards were due to be presented at a glittering black tie evening at The London Hilton on Thursday. It promised to be a fun packed evening with guests enjoying champagne and Woody's cocktails in the drinks reception, with Kit Kat Chunky, Quality Street, Ty Nant mineral water and Budweiser beer all free of charge. After the awards ceremony, guests could dance the night away in the disco or try their luck in the casino, quenching their thirst with Orange and Cranberry J2O from Britvic Soft Drinks.
