Leo Burnett Melbourne’s #MyFamilyCan campaign for SPC Ardmona has been awarded the coveted Grand Prix in the 2015 APMA Star Awards, presented by The Communications Council’s Australasian Promotional Marketing Association (APMA) at Sydney’s Pavilion in Darling Harbour.

The campaign – which saw the traditional branding on SPC Ardmona’s cans replaced with labels featuring the families responsible for the produce – also scooped four gold awards. Leo Burnett Melbourne took a further two golds for Honda campaigns, Be Our Best Critic and Magic Mobile Drive-In, collectively putting the agency in the lead with the most gold awards of the evening.

It was also a successful evening for Traffik, which scored three gold awards for Samsung Australia’s Slideliner campaign.

April5 Agency took home two golds for Cunard’s Queen Elizabeth tribute to 100 Years of ANZAC campaign, and Momentum Worldwide also won two for Reckitt Benkiser’s 30 Nights of Nookie campaign and Heineken Lion’s Heineken Chauffeur.

Gold awards were also presented to: ApolloNation for Heineken New Zealand’s Tui ‘Catch A Million’ campaign; The Idea Shed for iNova Pharmaceuticals’s campaign iNova Partner Programme: Grand Slam 2014; Geometry Global New Zealand for Sealord’s Sealord Little Boatcampaign; and, Bashful for General Pants Co’s #GivePeace campaign.

The award for Best Campaign Most Likely to Drive Behaviour (consumer tested by IMI International) went to Momentum Worldwide for Heineken Lion’s Heineken Chauffeur campaign.

The APMA Ignite Young Achiever award went to Nicole Hetherington (BMF), who was recognised for her passion and ability to create award-winning work and effectively lead a team, and for rising to the level of Senior Art Director at only 26.

APMA Chairman David Lo said: “Congratulations to all of the 2015 winners and finalists. This is the tenth anniversary for the APMA Star Awards and it’s great to see how they have developed over time to attract entries from a broad range of agencies and specialisms. The standard this year has been outstanding. It is important that we recognise these achievements to continue raising the bar for excellence in our industry. Thanks to all of this year’s 35 judges and Star Awards sponsors.”
