PHD UK made a big impact at this year’s Media Week Awards, taking home three gold and three silver over the course of the two-night virtual ceremony. The Media Week Awards celebrated great campaigns, innovations and collaborations, and introduced four special awards recognising the work of the industry’s response to the COVID-19 crisis.

PHD UK’s winning campaigns showcased their work with The British Heart Foundation, Confused.com, McCain and Warner Bros. The British Heart Foundation’s ‘24 Hours in A&E’ campaign was PHD’s big winner of the night bringing home two Gold and one Silver.
