The Romanian agency Leo Burnett&Target SA was awarded the Golden Rose for best advertising agency as the 12th Golden Drum, the largest advertising festival in the region, concluded on Friday, 7 October in the seaside resort of Portoroz.

Managing to secure three points less than the winner are Latvia's agency Zoom and Mark/BBDO Prague of the Czech Republic, both receiving 24 points from the festival jury.

The event, which was organised by the Slovenian Advertising Chamber, featured a record 2,483 advertisements from 40 countries, which competed for a number of awards in several categories.

The second-placed Zoom also received the Golden Drum Award for best TV commercial for a series of ads "Pickpockets". The Golden Drum for printed ads, however, went to the Czech agency Kaspen, which produced a series entitled "Superheroes".

The festival, which this year lasted five days, puts special emphasis on advertising in Central and Eastern Europe.
