Marina del Rey-based Ground Zero captured six Belding Awards bowls last week, including the top Sweepstakes Award for a campaign created for ESPN2 Night. The other awards were for work completed for ESPN2, ESPN, ESPNews, Genesee Brewing Co. and Virgin Cola. The "Knowledge" campaign, which won the Sweepstakes Award, showed a rabid fan turning into a fuzzy, round creature as he accumulated sports knowledge.

Such was the case Wednesday night when Stein Robaire Helm, a little-known Brentwood agency that didn't even exist until five years ago--but has since helped turn Ikea into a household name in Southern California--walked off with seven of the West Coast's top ad awards. No other agency won as many.

Small is getting very big in the ad business. So big, in fact, that a string of recent successes by smaller ad agencies could nudge the rest of the industry to return to its roots. Thursday night, one small agency proved--for the second consecutive year--that it ranks among the giants in Southern California. Stein Robaire Helm, a 7-year-old agency, walked off with the West Coast's premiere ad prize at the 28th annual Belding Awards.
