AWARD Award winners announced
 

Sydney, Australia – The winners of the 35th annual AWARD Awards were announced tonight in a celebration of the most outstanding creative communications work in the Asia Pacific region.

A total of 24 gold awards were presented at this year’s ceremony, with 81 silver, and 143 bronze.  

 

McCann Melbourne achieved unprecedented success, becoming a record seventeen-time gold winner across 12 categories for its ‘Dumb Ways to Die’ campaign, as well as taking home Agency of the Year.

Three Gold awards were presented to FCB New Zealand across Film and Video, Direct Marketing and Digital for the ‘Driving Dogs’ campaign, with a further Gold in the Digital category awarded to DDB DM9JaymeSyfu/Digit in Digital for ‘TXTBKS’. Clemenger BBDO New Zealand also took home Gold in Film and Video for ‘Blazed’, while Clemenger BBDO Melbourne scored two for ‘Melbourne Remote Control Tourist’ in the Film and Video and Digital categories – a campaign which was also awarded Best in Show by Sir John Hegarty, Chairman of Judging.

Sir John Hegarty said: “Creating something fresh that unlocks a genuine consumer advantage is rare. This idea utilises technology to deliver an experience that gives Melbourne a competitive edge. I wish I'd done it.”
 

The award for Network of the Year went to BBDO, while Metro Trains topped the list for Client of the Year, and Finch for Production Company of the Year.

This year’s ceremony also introduced the Creative Team of the Year award to recognise the most prolific of entrants – the creative or team credited across the most individual entries that won Bronze, Silver or Gold (including craft awards if that award is directly applicable to their craft). The award was presented to Brett Colliver and Simon Vicars from Colenso BBDO.   

Concluding the presentation, David Droga, Founder of Droga5 and one of Australia’s most respected creatives, was inducted in the AWARD Hall of Fame.
 

AWARD Chairman Mark Harricks said: "We did a lot of work this year to pull together a jury that had a healthy mix of experienced old hands and fresh new faces. Feedback from the juries has been extremely positive, with a lot of them surprised at the level of intensive scrutiny and rigour involved in the judging process. AWARD’s primary focus is to raise the bar of creativity in our region, and this year’s award winners do exactly that. I would like to congratulate all of this year's finalists and winners; you have faced the harsh scrutiny of peer judgement, and succeeded. Well done."

The 2014 AWARD Chairmen include: Chair of Judging, and Creative Innovation, Integrated and New Product Development, Sir John Hegarty (BBH London), Chair of Direct Marketing, Steve Coll (Havas Worldwide), Chair of Craft in Film, Paul Middleditch (Plaza Films), Chair of Film & Video, Steve Cochran (Colenso BBDO), Chair of Print Craft, Grant Rutherford (Publicis Mojo), Chair of Print, Poster & Outdoor, Ben Welsh (M&C Saatchi), Chair of Radio, Paul Reardon (Whybin\TBWA), Chair of Digital, Iain McDonald (Razorfish), Chair of Design, Michaela Webb (Round Studio), and Chair of PR, Media, Promotional & Experiential, Damon Stapleton (Saatchi & Saatchi).
