A pair of highly decorated campaigns emerged victorious once again at last night's D&AD awards ceremony in London. The Trillion Dollar Flyer effort for The Zimbabwean out of TBWA/Hunt Lascaris, and The Best Job in the World Campaign for New Zealand Tourism both earned the organization's coveted Black Pencil. The former was awarded in the Graphic Design category and was part of a campaign that started its awards run last year in Cannes, where it picked up an Outdoor Grand Prix. It also recently took home the first ADC Black Cube.

The 2009 trriple Cannes Grand Prix-winning Best Job in the World campaign for Tourism Queensland, out of SapienNitro (formerly Cummins Nitro) took multiples at this show too, earning Black Pencils in both the direct and integrated categories.

Two more efforts entered the Black Pencil Camp this year. The High Line, a park built on a former elevated freight railroad in New York City and designed by Diller Scofidio + Renfro, earned a Black Pencil in Environmental Design while earned the honor in the Websites category.

D&AD also bestowed 42 Yellow Pencils this year. TBWA/Hunt/Lascaris walked away with three, all for various portions of the Zimbabwean campaign, while Droga5 Sydney also earned triple Yellow as well, for its work on Victoria Bitter "Regulars" and "4320L.A./Syd" for V. Australia. A pair of Yellow Pencils also went to the "We Choose the Moon" Apollo 10 mission recreation for the JFK Presidential Library & Museum from The Martin Agency and Domani Studios.
