PHD Canada was the most decorated Canadian media agency at the sixth annual Internationalist Awards for Innovation in Media, taking home three awards.

The Montreal-based Touche!PHD won gold for its work on Canadian Tire’s Ice Truck – a modified 2005 Chevy truck chassis with a body made entirely of ice designed to show how well the retailer’s MotoMaster Eliminator AGM battery works at sub-arctic temperatures.
