'WHASSUP?' WINS TOP ANDY $50,000 PRIZE

NEW YORK (AdAge.com) -- The Advertising Club of New York handed out its 2001 International

ANDY Awards last night at the cavernous Hammerstein Ballroom in New York, but it was the Chicago and San Francisco contingents in the audience that had reason to cheer.

The competition's best of show award, formally known as the GRANDY, was presented to Omnicom Group's DDB Worldwide, Chicago, for its Anheuser Busch "Whassup" television campaign for Budweiser.

One shop, 12 awards
Another Omnicom agency, San Francisco's Goodby, Silverstein & Partners, topped all winners with 12 awards: seven ANDYs and five awards of Distinction. They won honors for work for Hewlett-Packard, Nike, Pacific Bell and E*Ttrade.

The event was notable for the presence onstage of the founding partners of GS&P, then called Goodby, Berlin & Silverstein: agency principals and co-creative directors Rich Silverstein and Jeff Goodby presented the bulk of the awards along with Andy Berlin of Berlin Cameron & Partners, New York.

Other multiple winners
Besides Goodby, Silverstein & Partners, the only other agencies to win more than one ANDY included Havas Advertising's Arnold Worldwide, Boston, for its magazine work for Volkswagen of America, and Cliff Freeman & Partners, New York, for Fox Sports.
