SHOOT Magazine, the leading publication for commercial and entertainment production, announced today that Wieden+Kennedy has been selected as its 2009 Advertising Agency of the Year. A Feature section on Wieden+Kennedy will be a vital part of SHOOT's high-visibility special Year-End Issue to be published on Friday, December 11, 2009.
SHOOT selected its pick for Ad Agency of the year based on which agency made the biggest positive impact in '09 in terms of brand building, creative, and successfully weaving its clients into the social fabric of mainstream and pop culture. In an evolving creative marketplace where advertising and entertainment have come together, Wieden+Kennedy stood out in 2009, winning a coveted entertainment industry award, the primetime commercial Emmy, for Coca-Cola's "Heist"--and for that matter being the only agency to have multiple spot Emmy nominations this year, the other two being for CareerBuilder.com's "Tips" and Nike's "Bottled Courage." The agency's entertainment business chops were also evident in its Cannes Lion-winning integrated campaign for the feature film Coraline, its creative hand in promoting Disney Pixar's Up, and a currently unfolding campaign designed to engage gamers for Dante's Inferno. Outside-the-box thinking led to W+K thinking "inside the box," literally, for Coraline and Dante's Inferno, and this expansive mindset is evident in a raft of great work this year. SHOOT talks to the key creative & production executives about the dynamics that brought this work about in '09. We'll explore their accomplishments, work and the challenges they met on assorted fronts.
SHOOT Creative Marketer of the Year: California Milk Processor Board
SHOOT's Marketer of The Year can be a client, a cause or a candidate (our top marketer in '07 was Dove and in '08 was Barack Obama).The fact is that great work requires a great client and we look to identify, assess and explore the client whose advertising and marketing resonated with the public in '09. SHOOT's pick for Creative Marketer of 2009 is the California Milk Processor Board. Dating back to its "got milk?" introduced in 1993, a query that has become part of and taken different forms in mainstream popular culture, the California Milk Processor Board has stretched its reach well beyond the Golden State. This California client has indeed been a global phenomenon and 2009 was a remarkable chapter in its advertising/marketing legacy, particularly the brand's efforts in the teenage and Hispanic markets through agencies Goodby, Silverstein & Partners, and Grupo Gallegos, respectively. From an audacious online rock opera featuring spandex clad rocker White Gold to the client's first animation spots which connected with Hispanic consumers, SHOOT looks at what California Milk accomplished--and how it was accomplished--in '09.
In addition to features on SHOOT's Agency of the Year and Marketer of the Year this Special Issue will provide creatives, filmmaking, commercialmaking and entertainment production industry readers with a look back on 2009, plus much more when published on Friday, December 11, 2009.
Here's rundown of additional features in SHOOT's "Year-End" Issue:

SHOOT "Kickoff to 50th Anniversary" Feature Series, Feature #1
SHOOT first appeared on the publishing scene in 1960 as part of Back Stage, a weekly newspaper covering a combination of performing arts and commercial production news and features. The two distinct sections continued as one publication until mid-1990 when the section covering ad agencies, production and postproduction was spun off and became its own publication. As SHOOT embarks on its 50th year, it kicks off a series of special issues and events that will run throughout 2010, culminating with a special SHOOT 50th Anniversary Commemorative Issue, Industry Event and Anniversary Bash in December 2010. In this issue we kick off the first in a series of SHOOT 50th Anniversary articles exploring the past, present & future of various industry segments. A full slate of special issues, new products and events will be announced in December 2009. Helping us kick off the inaugural feature in this special series will be Larry Bridges, founder of Red Car; Lee Clow, chief creative officer/global director of Media Arts, TBWA Worldwide, and chairman of TBWA\Media Arts Lab; director Bob Giraldi of Giraldi Media; and Bob Greenberg, chairman/CEO/global chief creative officer, R/GA, who share perspectives and insights with SHOOT.
