Last night was a particularly rewarding night for Melbourne-based agencies once again at the ADMA Australian Creativity and Effectiveness (AC&E) Awards, held last night at Sydney’s Luna Park.

Clemenger BBDO Melbourne received the most awards handed out during the evening to one agency, taking home 10 gongs plus three Pinnacles, including the Data-Driven Award, The Courageous Client Award and the Grand Prix.

For 2017, new Pinnacle categories were introduced including Social Impact and Data-Driven to ensure the awards are aligned with industry expectations.

The Audit Media Association joined with the AC&E Awards audit committee, reviewing all entries to ensure that only agencies that could prove their results got through to the final round.

‘Meet Graham’ produced by Clems Melbourne for the Transport Accident Commission (Victoria) was the most awarded campaign on the night, including for Courageous Client.

Snickers’ ‘Hungerithm’, also by Clems Melbourne, was also recognised in a big way on the night with four awards plus one Pinnacle Award in the Data-Driven category.

In all, the gala evening delivered 42 winning trophies and 39 highly commended trophies.

“The AC&E Awards matter enormously to clients and agencies today because they’re the only awards in Australia that recognise exceptional creativity and solid business results in equal proportion, not as separate specialisations,” ADMA chief executive Jodie Sangster said.

“Together, they have the power to transform a business demonstrated by the fantastic work we’ve seen.

“I congratulate all the winners, those who received highly commended trophies and the finalists, all of whom should be very proud of their work.”
