Honda's "Paper" and BMW's "Reverse April Fools" lead the 3rd Annual One Show Automobile Advertising of the Year Awards

The One Show Automobile Advertising of the Year Awards were announced today at the International Auto Show in Detroit. Not surprisingly, Honda’s "Paper," via creative agency RPA, took top honors in the film category. But lesser-known efforts, like Chevrolet’s ballsy "Technology and Stuff" and "Mister Bunny’s Journey," a regional dealer ad from Toronto, were honored as well.

The automotive awards is the only category-specific awards show held by the One Club, which also produces The One Show and Creative Week. "NAIAS is the gold standard for automotive and the perfect partner for a category that produces some of the best creative work in the world," said Yash Egami, VP, content and marketing at The One Club and producer of the Automobile Advertising of the Year Awards.
