LEAP, a full-service interactive agency, is pleased to announce that it has won six Interactive Advertising Awards for its work for Lily of France. These honors were part of the Web Marketing Association's WebAwards, the premier award event for web developers and marketers worldwide.

The Web Marketing Association was founded in 1997 with the intention of setting a high standard for interactive marketing and website development. Its WebAwards recognize excellence in both these disciplines.

LEAP received awards for Best Retail Online Campaign, Best Shopping Online Campaign, Best Shopping Website, and OutstandingWebsites for various elements of its Lily of France "Find Your Sexy Style" campaign. LEAP also received honors for Best Retail Integrated Ad Campaign and Outstanding Integrated Ad Campaign. Each of these awards considers all elements of a campaign and their overall creativity and effectiveness as a whole.

"When we set out to create a campaign for a client, the goal is always that it works and works well for them. That's the true test of an idea," said Alan Gilleo, LEAP's Chief Digital Officer and Executive Creative Director. "When the work then wins an award or multiple awards in this case, it's the icing on the cake."

This latest set of awards for LEAP's Lily of France work brings the total won for the campaign to 13. The campaign had previously won Gold and Silver W3 Awards, the 2008 American Business Award, and an Addy® Award.
