Effie Awards Announces 2021 Ireland Winners

The Effie Awards Ireland 2021 winners were celebrated during a virtual broadcast from The Mansion House on Thursday 23rd September. Hosted by IAPI, over 600 agency folk and their marketing clients tuned into the online ceremony that was presented by Jennifer Zamparelli. The online awards ceremony celebrated the most effective Irish marketing and advertising campaigns chosen from nearly 100 entries to these inaugural awards.  

Damian Devaney, senior vice president, TBV Global, the international Business Transformation Consultancy, spoke about why he willingly accepted the role as Chair of Effie Awards Ireland and what it means for the industry. “The introduction of the Effie Programme to Ireland is a significant step for IAPI and the industry because they go to the very heart of the advertising business. They are proven over 50 years and are the only worldwide standard awards in creative effectiveness. 

Having proven examples of how the craft of creativity can demonstrably impact a company’s performance is what makes this whole industry tick. I’ve been passionate about proving the importance of what agencies do for over 20 years. Effie Awards are designed to illuminate as clearly and professionally as possible great examples of that in practice to the same standard across the world.”

The scarcity value and the standard required by Effie Worldwide became apparent during the ceremony where only seven Gold, 12 Silver and 12 Bronze Effies were announced across 22 categories. However, given the intensive judging process and, the scrutiny that the jury applied to ensure that each case was assessed to the global benchmarking standard, it proves yet again, that Ireland can hold its’ own when it comes to effectiveness in commercial creativity, media innovation and advertising.

Charley Stoney, CEO, IAPI congratulated the winners saying; “The Effie Programme is more than the awards themselves. The process of entering; taking part in the judging; receiving verbatim jury feedback; having a bank of effectiveness cases to research within our own country – all of these things create a centre of learning for the Irish Marketing & Advertising industry.

"We should be so proud of the positive impact we have on the Irish Economy and now, through Effies, we have case studies that prove it. Brands and agencies are working together every day to build businesses; launch new products; carry out social change for good; raise donations for worthy charities and sell products to willing consumers. We are all about keeping the economy going!” 

Effie Awards Ireland has provided the Irish advertising and marketing industry with their first ever opportunity to pitch themselves against their peers globally. Every Gold winner this year can now enter both Euro Effie Best of the Best and Global Effie Best of the Best in 2022. 

Effie Awards Ireland is supported by RTÉ Media Sales, An Post Commerce, Pluto, Wide Eye Media and Twitter. A representative from each sponsor was on stage during the ceremony to award and congratulate the Effie winners.
