Finding a new way to help people quit smoking, the campaign dramatises the long-term suffering that a smoker and their family endure due to a smoking-related illness, compared with the short-term pain of quitting. Approximately 180,000 smokers made a quit attempt as a direct result of seeing the National Tobacco Campaign.

 

Continuing its success, AJF Partnership was also presented Effective Agency of the Year after claiming an additional Gold for the ANPHA campaign, silver for Officeworks and two bronze awards for iSelect and Lion.

Seven Gold Effies were presented in total, with three awarded to Clemenger BBDO Melbourne for BONDS, and the final three were given to 303Lowe for Challenger, Host for The Coca-Cola Company, and Whybin\TBWA\DAN Sydney for RaboDirect.

The ceremony, held at the City Recital Hall in Sydney, also delivered 14 silver and 17 bronze trophies, awarding a total of 18 agencies and 23 clients.

Chairman of the Australian Effie Awards, Matthew Melhuish said: “I’d like to thank and congratulate all of this year’s winners and finalists for sharing their brilliant work with us. It is inspiring to be exposed to the world class strategies demonstrated in this year’s showcase.
