Amazon, Trump, Nike, Netflix, Burger King: The Chip Shop Awards US winners revealed

The world is filled with outrage, over-reactions and negativity and creatives really do have a hard time breaking through industry safety tape. Fears of offending, being too controversial and worrying about what others think often stifles that thinking outside the box mentality, and too often becomes an afterthought.

The Chip Shop Awards aim to support creatives in innovative thinking and to show that they are both a thought and industry leader when it comes to pure unadulterated creativity.

This year, The Drum launched these awards in the United States with the ceremony taking place during Advertising Week New York in The Drum Arms. The chair of the judging panel was Mark Fallow, founder of the Fabrica Collective.

Sit back and take a look at what the industry has to offer.
