The Creative Circle Ad of the Month results for January 2012 have been announced.
Chairperson John Davenport of Ireland/Davenport said that, while a reasonable amount of work had been entered for the month, there had been very few entries in the Outdoor category and these would therefore be held over to the following month for judging. He also said that the Mercedes cinema ad was a good example of an idea specifically tailored to the medium.

The winner was Clover's 'Way Better' microsite which created a Dr Suess-like Dairyverse to teach its audience about Clover's products and dramatize its process.
