Weber Shandwick wins IABC and SABRE
Public relations agency Weber Shandwick has won the 2006 International Association of Business Communicators (IABC) and a Gold Superior Achievement in Branding and Reputation (SABRE) Award for its `Move it or lose it' campaign for the International Osteoporosis Foundation. The campaign, launched on World Osteoporosis Day in October 2005, encourages regular exercise to help build and maintain strong bones, prevent falls and fractures, and speed rehabilitation in osteoporosis patients. McCann Erickson, the creative agency behind the visuals for the campaign, also picked up several international awards.
