"To me The Chip Shops is about raw talent. The other award schemes reward craft, and finished thinking, but the Chip Shops is the only showcase for the original concept. It's a chance for creatives to truly express themselves without the usual encumbrances. It encourages daring brave, and sometimes, outrageous solutions, and pokes two fat hairy fingers at the norm."

    "You always know when the chip shop awards are calling for entries because a real buzz is generated in the creative department. It's great for the agency, and great for the teams and the chips are proudly displayed around the place. Looking forward to the 2011 awards already."
