Lord Bell, chairman of Chime Communications and chairman of the BOB judges, said: "There were clear winners in each category. The judges did all the work and my job was fairly easy. I think the BOBs are a great idea -- the pursuit of excellence is what our business is all about and the BOBs ensure proper recognition for some excellent winners."
BBH's work for clients including Audi, Lever Faberge Lynx, Robinsons, Britvic, Department of Health and Sony Ericsson helped it to take the top prize among the large creative agencies.
Best creative agency in the Small category was won by Wieden & Kennedy London for its work on Honda UK and Nike.
