And the first winners are...

Atmosphere at the Golden Drum Festival today was vibrant with Drummers checking this year's Multi channel shortlists, listening to interesting Creative academies by Independent agencies, TBWA, Grey Group and attending workshops and screenings.  During Happy Hours Drummers enjoyed the pleasant mingling on the terrace and tried not to miss the meeting with president and members of Single channel jury. Of course many pictures in our photo gallery prove what a great time they had.
