The best radio ad of 2017 will be contested between 10 of Australia’s leading agencies and production studios from Sydney, Melbourne and Perth as part of the national Siren Awards, which will be announced next month.

Last year’s Gold Siren was won by Melbourne agency Clemenger BBDO for the Maltesers ad titled “Texas Chainsaw Massacre”, created by Elle Bullen and James Orr.

The Melbourne agency dominated the round wins this year and is credited with 11 of the 30 finalist nominations.

Creative radio ads promoting charities, road safety, beer, dog food, fast food, banks, and public transport are amongst the high-quality entrants up for the Gold Siren Award this year.

The Gold Siren winner will receive a trip to the Cannes Radio Lions in June, accompanied by the client of their winning campaign. In addition, Silver Sirens will be awarded to the winners of the three Siren categories of Single, Campaign and Craft.

The winners are decided by the Siren Creative Council – a panel of creative directors from leading ad agencies. Finalists are selected from five rounds and a final call of Siren voting throughout 2016-17. There is also a $5,000 cash prize for a client-voted award.

Stand-up comedian and Fox FM Melbourne breakfast presenter Dave Thornton will host this year’s Siren Awards in Melbourne on Thursday 11 May.
