Last night was ADMA’s AC&E Awards celebrating the best creative and effective work that Australian marketing and advertising delivered in the past year.

There are 30 awards sub-categories, grouped into seven distinct categories. In addition to these, the Pinnacle and Excellence Awards  recognise the individuals and agencies who have made an exceptional contribution to Australian Marketing, Media & Advertising. These winners will be specially selected by our 2016 judges.

Deserving winners Clemenger BBDO Melbourne were awarded The Grand Prix Award for ‘The Boys’, which judges said “nailed strategic insight and the way they communicated to their audience”, truly embodying everything that the AC&E Awards represent.
