Aeroexpress' "Honest Cabbies..." campaign takes first place in ad festival

An Aeroexpress film took first place in the internet category at the sixth International White Square Festival of Advertising and Marketing last week.

The company's "Honest Cabbies Recommend Aeroexpress: Lie Detector" campaign featured video and radio commercials, billboards and advertising on taxis.

The commercials follow everyday Moscow taxi drivers who have to face the choice between speaking honestly and making money--the drivers tell fares Aeroexpress, which is owned in part by Uzbek mogul Iskander Makhmudov, is faster than taking a taxi.

The White Square awards recognize advertisements that bring creativity and innovative solutions to the industry. Entries are judged by an international jury made up of 63 people in the advertising industry who have received international recognition or other prestigious awards.
