Apple Wins Grand Effie For 'Get A Mac' Campaign


At last night's 39th Annual Effie Awards held at New York's Metropolitan Pavillion, Apple's "Get A Mac" campaign was awarded the Grand Effie. The Effies award campaigns that actually do something versus just look pretty. We have Cannes and a whole slew of other shows to perform the beauty contest aspect of advertising. Not that there's anything at all wrong with winning a beauty contest, mind you.

Apple's "get A Mac" campaign achieved a market share growth of 42 percent. While 42 percent growth of any kin is certainly impressive, 42 percent of the company's existing 5-6 percent market share isn't sos much.

The Grand Effie finalists this year were Grand Effie winner Apple Inc. "Get a Mac" from Media Arts Lab\TBWA and OMD, American Express "My Life.
My Card." from Ogilvy & Mather and Mindshare, California Milk Processor Board "Got Milk?" from Goodby Silverstein & Partners, Montana Meth Project "Not Even Once" from Venables Bell & Partners and OMD, Pedigree "Pedigree Adoption Drive" from TBWA\Chiat\Day and Grey Interactive and Philips Norelco "Bodygroom" from Tribal DDB, DDB New York, MS&L and Carat USA .
