New York Times: "Make Sense of Our Times."
Bozell/New York's post-9/11 print campaign for The New York Times took the Grand Prize at the Athena Awards Wednesday night in New York. Sponsored by the Newspaper Association of America and the Newspaper National Network, the Athenas honor creativity in newspaper advertising.

The winning campaign, which won a Gold Lion in Cannes earlier this year, features the paintings of Norman Rockwell -- modified to reflect current realities -- and the tagline, "Make Sense of Our Times." Gold Athenas were awarded to BBDO/Atlanta for work for Stamps Unlimited, to Carmichael Lynch, Minneapolis, for ads for Harley-Davidson, to ChuSands, New York, for work for the Coalition for the Homeless, to Crispin Porter + Bogusky/Miami for ads from the Florida "Truth" campaign, and to Hill, Holliday/Boston for work for the Boston Bulldogs. Bozell and CP+B each won three awards in all, while BBDO/Atlanta, Brokaw Inc., Cleveland, Oh., Carmichael Lynch and Fallon each won two.

The winning work is on display at New York's One Club through October 2. The exhibit will then travel to various U.S. cities, including San Francisco, Miami, Minneapolis and Portland, Ore.
