Ahmad Tea is celebrating winning four prizes at the EVCOM London Live & Film Awards for the ‘What It Takes’ ad campaign.

The global above-the-line advert won Gold in ‘Cinematography’ and ‘Best Digital Campaign’ categories, Silver in ‘Brand Amplification’ and Bronze in ‘Best Social Campaign’.

Ahmad Tea & Edge Pictures Collecting EVCOM Awards

The iconic campaign, created by The Edge Picture Company, explores the years of dedication, passion and commitment it takes to become a master of your art.

The advert, that launched in 2019/20 follows four artists; a painter, a musician, and a gymnast, juxtaposed with Ahmad Tea’s Senior Taster. It shows that they all share the same discipline and passion to become an expert in their art.

Here’s a reminder of the advert.

Tracey Wakelin, Ahmad Tea Head of Marketing said, “We are thrilled to have come away with so many awards at such a prestigious event.”

“What It Takes is all about overcoming obstacles to achieve something special. So it’s fitting that our months of hard work, alongside the fantastic team at The Edge, have been recognised. We’re immensely proud of the campaign and delighted that it has driven such strong results within so many of our markets around the world.”
