Henries’ Catch-up On Memories and Global Greetings

There were some fabulous winners at The Henries this year (https://www.pgbuzz.net/the-henries-happiness-is-overflowing/), but there were also lots of other ‘winning moments’ that added to the virtual event and created a real sense of belonging.

From seeing Bill Greeno in his pants and Simon Elvin ‘pulling a pint’ with his very first Henries trophy; from a very happy message from Toy Symphony’s Hiroshi Kawamura in Japan to an Italian ‘ciao’ from Origamo’s Furio Ceciliato, the award ceremony was peppered with intermissions of global greetings as well as shared memories from the last 25 years of The Henries from leading publishers.

All good things are worth reliving, so here as an early Christmas present is your Henries’ Highlights Catch-up…
