Juries for the 47th international Clio Awards announced Grand Clio winners for best-in-show. On May 15, 2006, juries awarded a total of 29 Gold Clio winners for the evening at the Clio Content & Contact, Print, Internet, Design, Innovative and Integrated Media Awards Gala at the Jackie Gleason Theater in South Beach, Miami, part of the annual Clio Festival, May 13-16, 2006. Clios in the Television/Cinema and Radio categories were announced May 16.
The Clio judging process makes it possible for there to be more than one Gold, Silver or Bronze winner or in some cases, no winner at all within individual categories. With just under 19,000 submissions received from around the world, only about one percent of all entries qualify to receive a Gold Clio. If judges determine a Gold winner is best-of-the-best in the category, they have the opportunity to bestow an even higher honor: the Grand Clio.
