Last Thursday, the Ann Summers and Propaganda team descended upon Grosvenor House in London for the 20th anniversary of the Oracle Retail Week Awards. The ballroom was packed to the rafters, just one further sign that British retail is bouncing back from its pre-recession strains, and prepared to celebrate.

Ann Summers was nominated in two categories – Store Manager of the Year and Marketing Campaign of the Year, for the on-going creative and strategic initiatives led by Propaganda to change perception of the pleasure retailer.

Unfortunately we didn’t quite walk away with the crown (gallant losers to the power of John Lewis and The Bear & The Hare Christmas 2013). However winners across the board showcased the very best in innovative thinking, and how Britain continues to lead retail across the world.

An inspiring evening, as part of our continued work with Ann Summers, our nomination for next year is already underway. John Lewis watch out: at Propaganda, we outthink, not outspend our competition.
