Going wild with the 2009 Animal Spot Awards thumbnail

Okay, maybe your TV campaign didn’t win a Lion, but it did feature a lion. If so, you might be kicking yourself to learn that you could’ve won an Animal Spot Award.

Yes, the sixth edition of the Animal Spot International Advertising Festival Awards Ceremony takes place this Thursday, July 9th, at Casa del Cinema (Villa Borghese) in Rome, Italy. For those of you unaware of Animal Spot, it is a worldwide festival that celebrates ads that feature animals and/or are for animal related causes.

If you’re still scratching your head, let’s cut right to the press release, shall we?
