Awards night – a cautionary tale

With only one week to go until the Dubai Lynx awards night, the big question troubling the region’s ad community is not who will pick up the grand prix, (ok, maybe that’s crossed a couple of people’s minds) but what on earth am I going to wear?

Though for anyone hatching plans to try something a little more sartorially adventurous, here’s a cautionary tale: A few years ago a well-known British creative director was utterly convinced he would sweep the board at a UK advertising awards show. So convinced in fact, that in order to carry his haul of golden arrows – the awards’ highly covetable trophies – he had the bright idea to attend the event dressed as the noted archer, Robin Hood himself, complete with green pointy hat, tights and quiver. He won nothing. The only thing he took home was a large amount of egg on his face. You have been warned…
