For the second year in a row, Fallon/Minneapolis won the Emmy for Outstanding Commercial by the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences. The award went to the Citibank commercial "Outfit"-directed by Kevin Thomas of Thomas Thomas Films-in which we see an average joe whose identity has been swiped by a shopping fanatic. The Emmy is the agency's second in as many years, following last year's win for the PBS commercial "Fish." Fallon also won the commercial Emmy in 2001 for the Errol Morris-directed PBS spot "Photobooth." ... Veteran creative directors Dean Stefanides and Larry Hampel will spearhead the launch of a New York office of Chicago-based independent agency Cramer-Krasselt. The full-service office, which will be known as Cramer-Krasselt/Hampel Stefanides, will initially share space with CKPR, Cramer-Krasselt's public relations subsidiary. Hampel and Stefanides, who will serve as co-ECDs, have been a creative team since working together at Scali, McCabe, Sloves in the 1980s. In 1993, they forged out on their own to found Hampel/Stefanides. The agency was acquired by Toronto's Envoy Communications Group in 1998 and shuttered early last year.... Following up on last year's roast of Joe Pytka, the VCU Adcenter has announced the details of its second annual fundraiser, which will pit a trio of industry heavyweights against their former partners.

The event, which benefits the Adcenter at Virginia Commonwealth University, will take place on Nov. 4 at Gotham Hall in New York.
