"Many would say a pencil is a the most coveted award in the business"
And what does the majority think?

To those who say the copy is good: um, what? The headlines are weak-to-good, and the body copy about average. You have a ripe audience here - advertising pros, copywriters. Wouldn't you exploit it further, squeeze as much as possible out of the situation and the copy?

Surely, someone, somewhere would have done a better job of this brief. Perhaps this same team, before this version ran.

Ed: Read all three ads again. I shall come of my pedestal a bit. But I still maintain that the situation could have been exploited further. And definitely better headlines
