Chima Okenimkpe, executive creative director, Insight, said “This is a testament that Nigerian agencies can attain global recognition with creative works that stand out from the clutter and make an impact. A lot more agencies are winning international awards and recognition, and Insight will continue to help champion creativity and innovation in the Nigerian marketing communications industry.”
