Advertising Gold: AMVBBDO’s “Sapeurs”

Guinness' short earns the London based agency a Gold Cube for cinematography.

There are only a few days left to enter the ADC 94th Annual Awards Advertising category. The deadline has been extended until Monday, February 9, but that will be here before you know it!

Entering the ADC Annual Awards is one thing, but winning a a Cube is another. This week we will be showcasing ads that won Gold Cubes at the 93rd Annual Awards last year, in hopes that these recent winners will inspire you to join them in the history books.

AMVBBDO earned a Gold Cube at last year’s ADC Awards for the stunning cinematography used in “Sapeurs”, one of a series of shorts created for Guinness that celebrates people with extraordinary integrity and character — in this case “les sapeurs”, a group of flamboyantly dressed men in Brazzaville.
