The winning pitch included giving delegates iPads to issue instructions throughout the event, dinner at organic restaurant Bio Mio and holding meetings in a school.

Indesit’s Jayson Weston, Barclays’ Anthea MacKay, Concept & Competence’s Ann Hansen, and TW’s Christine Fuchs judged the entries.

Agencies from North America, Germany, Sweden and Norway also pitched at the event, which took place at the Danish Imagination area in St Katharine Docks.
