JWT swept the board at last night’s APG Creative Strategy Awards
winning a total of eight accolades including the Grand Prix and three Golds. The APG Awards are well-regarded and are a coveted recognition of excellence in advertising & communications strategy.
Last year, Banco Popular's "The Most Popular Song" by JWT San Juan helped stimulate Puerto Rico's economy and challenge its reliance on welfare by rewriting the lyrics to one of the country's most well-known songs. In 2012, JWT San Juan and Banco Popular created "The Race of a Country"
to keep the momentum going by inspiring Puerto Rico once again. With the help of Olympic hurdler Javier Culson, JWT San Juan invited Puerto Rico to metaphorically run with Culson to overcome the many hardships faced by the country.
