They have revealed the global stars that have grasped the complexities of international content-driven advertising campaigns, and provided a benchmark for others to aspire to. I have no doubt that next year we will see the Awards grow to be even bigger and better.”

Chris Gottlieb, chief marketing and communications officer at London & Partners, added: “It’s an incredible honour to win both the World Media Awards Grand Prix and the World Media Award for Travel & Tourism, especially given the quality of campaigns that entered from across the world. It was a privilege to showcase what London has to offer through the campaign with a spotlight on over 30 amazing experiences.

“We could not have done this without our superb partners across London and those celebrities and individuals who gave up their time to promote London as the greatest city on earth. I’d also like to pay tribute to my fantastic team at London & Partners, The Brooklyn Brothers and the Great Britain campaign for making London’s Official Guest of Honour possible, and showing just how powerful content can be.”

The World Media Awards were created by the World Media Group, an alliance of leading international publishers, including Bloomberg, The Economist and The Wall Street Journal.
