Proud and happy - Åkestam Holst #1 at Guldägget 2019
Wow! Our 22 nominations in the Golden Egg hatched into 3 Gold Eggs and 9 Silver Eggs last night.
Not bad, especially considering our record-breaking win of half the Golden Eggs – 7 out of 14 – in last years awards ceremony. A big congratulation to all the clients and teams who made this great work possible!
On top of that, our creative director Magnus Jakobsson won the prestigious Golden Writing award. Horray, how absolutely magical!
And to make this an especially special night, Magnus was deservedly awarded a Platinum egg as well, the prize awarded to industry legends.
That means he’s been elected into the Platinum Academy, the small group of movers and shakers who have played a big role in shaping the Swedish ad industry, and joins our founder Göran Åkestam among the local gods of creative advertising.
Congratulations, Magnus, on a very well-deserved lifetime career award for a career that is far from over.
And as always, thanks to all the people whose talent and hard work made this possible. You’re the best.
