Outdoor Media Association Announce Winners Of Its Creative Collection Competition

Outdoor Media Association Announce Winners Of Its Creative Collection Competition

The Outdoor Media Association (OMA) has today announced the winners of its Creative Collection competition for Q2 2016. Run quarterly by the OMA, the Creative Collection competition recognises and celebrates the most creative and innovative Out-of-Home (OOH) campaigns.

Launched in 2013, the competition continues to gain momentum, with winners appearing in the biennial publication OPEN  – an anthology of Outdoor creative from Australia and around the world.

Campaigns are judged across the following categories:

  • Best creative execution
  • Best traditional use of the OOH medium
  • Best use of a special build
  • Best use of technology/innovation

The Q2 competition attracted 45 submissions from OMA members including Adshel, APN Outdoor, Executive Channel Network, goa, JCDecaux, oOh!media, QMS Media and TorchMedia.

Guest judges included Jon Kelly, Creative Director – iris Sydney; Charles Parry-Okeden, CEO – Executive Channel Network and Michaela Chan, Chief Marketing Officer – oOh!media

As OOH adds more strings to its bow for advertisers – engagement, reach, scale, impact, flexibility, immediacy and utility – the calibre and standard of OOH campaigns also increases. In the Q2 competition, we have recognised this by honouring two campaigns with Grand Prix titles. These campaigns are the epitome of the power OOH, demonstrating how it can work with online and mobile, that technology is our friend, and the undeniable power of a tried and true classic poster in the OOH environment.

This sentiment was echoed by guest judge Jon Kelly who said, “OOH holds a unique power as a culture shaper. It tells people what is important. Being big, visible and semi-permanent, it by default, becomes reputable and authoritative. That’s why it was great to see the #CreateWelcome campaign in Queensland using OOH to make such a big statement. One that debatably, no other media could achieve.”
