AWARD School Adelaide announced Rory Kennett-Lister asSouth Australia’s top graduate in a ceremony at The Austral’s Bunka in Adelaide.
More than 50 creatives and industry supporters attended the event, which showcased the best pieces of work from the 2014 class of 10.
Congratulating the students on their achievements, AWARD School Head, Matt O’Grady (Creative Director, Clemenger BBDO), said: “This year’s AWARD school briefs were among some of the toughest I’ve seen. Even the more seasoned tutors among us were sometimes left scratching our heads. So to actually get an idea on paper, let alone a good one, is an accomplishment that should be acknowledged.”
“And compounding this is the pressure on students to deliver great ideas within a strict deadline. Over the twelve weeks I reckon the students aged about twelve years. But the one student who managed to retain some of their youthfulness was Rory Kennett-Lister. While every student demonstrated moments of brilliance, it was Rory who maintained a consistent portfolio of strong and insightful ideas across all mediums,” he added.
The AWARD School program has now been running for more than 30 years; the 2014 graduates follow in the footsteps of many of today’s creative leaders, including past students: Craig Davis, ex-Chairman of AWARD and Co-Chairman & Chief Creative Officer of Publicis Mojo, David Droga, Founder and Creative Chairman of Droga5, and Matt Eastwood, Chief Creative Officer at DDB New York.
