Whybin\TBWA took home the Grand Prix prize at the APMA Star Awards held in Sydney last night.

The agency scooped the coveted gong for its ‘NRMA Car Creation’ campaign for Insurance Australia Group, a campaign that saw a car built from scratch using parts that the company’s competitors did not cover.

At the Awards, which acknowledge marketing activation agencies in the area of promotional and experiential marketing work, Whybin\TBWA also claimed two Golds, one for MJ Bale 'Grazed on Greatness' and another prize for NRMA Car Creation.

Leo Burnett Melbourne's was the other big winner on the night, scooping four Golds, with Seek 'Volunteer to Promote Volunteering' and MADC’s Overtime Pizza rewarded.

The Young Achiever award was won by Amy Jenkins from 30thirty, who was recognised for her success in account management, and Andrej Sikanjic of The Zoo Republic for his contribution to the agency’s creative department.

Kylie Green was presented the Lifetime Achievement Award for 25 years service to the industry.

APMA chairman David Lo said: "As the industry becomes ever-more integrated, we are also seeing more submissions arriving from areas such as PR and digital – not simply participating, but winning awards.

"It was also fantastic to see a continued trend from last year, with a number of Gold Star Awards going to campaigns that are not purely about selling more products but showing how the power of brand activation and experience can influence behaviour for charitable or cause-related issues. Congratulations to all of the 2013 winners and finalists.”
