1. Go to AdAge.com at (http://www.adage.com). Find the last report available about award-winning international commercials (these may be from any of the media forms--note that these awards occur at different times of the year). After examining the commercials and their reported content, comment on why you think they might have won (or been designated as being award-winning). Was there anything that the commercials had in common? Did the commercials seem to be standardized or adapted? If many commercials are listed, you pick a sampling for purposes of your report.

Your list will be used to acquaint your company’s managers with facts before they enter the countries and attempt to sell in their markets (if you need to make certain assumptions because of the nature of your product or service, you may do so). Using the Yahoo (http://www.yahoo.com or Google (http://www.google.com search engines, find the cultural data that will help you to design your list.
