London - Following a year of creative highlights, Saatchi & Saatchi EMEA is rounding off 2009 with a host of awards at the European festivals.

Leading the way was Saatchi & Saatchi UK, with ‘Dance’ for T-Mobile (pictured) winning 6 awards. The most awarded UK agency, it took Gold in Integrated and TV, Gold and Silver in Craft, Silver in Media and Bronze in Direct.

The good work continued for T-Mobile, with MUW Saatchi & Saatchi Slovakia adding a Media Gold and Silver for its ‘Messages’ campaign, and T-Mobile hub in Austria winning a Gold in Media for ‘Rain of Flowers’ shared with Saatchi Frankfurt.

At the Epicas T-Mobile Dance won the Epica D’Or (Film) as well as two Golds (Film and Technique categories). EMEA agencies took an additional 9 Silver and 2 Bronze Epicas.

The London International Awards saw Saatchi & Saatchi Rome win Silver in Digital with ‘Contemporary Beer’ for Zoogami, also a Cannes Lions winner earlier this year.
