Award: Wood Pencil

Wood Pencil / TV & Cinema Crafts / Cinematography / 2008

In May 2007, São Paulo hit the headlines as the only city in the world to ban the billboard. It was both an international story and a unique advertising opportunity. This ad shows the changing landscape of São Paulo and the way people reacted to this new billboard-free environment.
