Nike’s 'Dream Crazy' campaign takes Best in Show at the One Show
Wieden & Kennedy also named Agency of the Year
Nike's 'Dream Crazy' swept the One Show, taking Best in Show and a slew of pencils and propelling Wieden & Kennedy and brand to other top honors.
Nike ruled during the One Club's 46th annual One Show last week, taking home Best in Show as well as a slew of pencils for “Dream Crazy,” an extension of the brand’s “Just Do It” campaign.
The campaign, created out of Wieden & Kennedy Portland and produced out of Park Pictures and Joint Portland, illustrated how athletes have defied expectations to make seemingly insane dreams a reality. Most notably, it included ads featuring former NFL player Colin Kaepernick along with the line, “Believe in something, even if it means sacrificing everything,” a nod to his controversial decision to kneel during the national anthem at NFL games,” putting his own career at risk.
Over the show's two nights on Wednesday and Friday, the campaign earned 10 Gold pencils, two Silver, four Bronze, along with four Best of Discipline honors in Creative Effectiveness, Integrated, Print & Outdoor and Social Media. One of the Gold wins was in the Cultural Driver category, which recognizes ideas that have major impact on society and exist outside traditional ad and design categories.
Wieden & Kennedy also took home honors for Agency of the Year while Nike earned the title Client of the Year.
Other top winners include Spotify, named In-House Agency of the Year; DDB Worldwide, which earned Network of the Year; Omnicom Group, Creative Holding Company of the Year and MPC, named Production Company of the Year.
