The APMA Star Awards were held in Sydney last night with Leo Burnett Melbourne receiving three gold awards and the Grand Prix.

The agency picked up the awards with work for Peters Ice Cream, SPC Ardmona and 7-Eleven. The coveted Grand Prix was for #SPCSunday – a campaign which leveraged user-generated content to raise awareness and money for Australia’s oldest and declining fruit processor, SPC Ardmona.

ApolloNation & Buzz scored two gold awards for Carlton & United Breweries Victoria Bitter, with ApolloNation taking home a further two golds for DB Breweries Tui. Bashful and new entrant Edelman both received two for Kao Australia and Best&Less respectively. Gold awards were also presented to Graffitti Group for Transport Accident Commission, Whybin\TBWA Group Sydney for Insurance Australia Group, The Zoo Republic for Arnott’s Biscuits, OMD for Frucor Beverages, and One Green Bean for Virgin Media Game of Phones.

The Zoo Republic’s campaign for Tim Tam 50th Birthday for client Arnott’s Biscuits was also the winner of the new award Best Campaign Most Likely to Drive Behaviour which was consumer tested by IMI International.

The APMA Ignite Young Achiever award went to 27 year old Michelle Smith (The Zoo Republic), who was recognised for a string of impressive pitch and award achievements, as well as leading a number of important initiatives within her agency, such as developing a new process for creative and account service briefs and leading regular internal training sessions.

APMA Chairman David Lo thanked this year’s 39 judges and the Star Award sponsors. He said: “Congratulations to all of the 2014 winners and finalists. There was extremely tough competition this year, with a 32 per cent rise in entrants across a broad range of disciplines. There are gold winners from creative, experiential, PR and Media agencies this year, demonstrating a diverse mix of solutions for promotional marketing campaigns and helping to raise the bar for excellence in this field.”
