Two up-and-coming Brisbane creatives have been crowned the winners of the Young Glory 2016-17 global creative competition.
Tom Kimmorley, art director at next Thursday, and Emma Ziesemer, a copywriter from Redsuit, have been crowned the winners of the prestigious competition.
Featuring 300 teams from across the globe, Kimmorley and Ziesemer’s win caps a marathon effort, with the competition comprising of eight rounds from September 2016 to April 2017.
The announcement was made last night in Montreal, where the pair have travelled to present their winning work at the worldwide C2 Conference in front of 2,000 people.
Dan Adler, managing director of next Thursday, said he was thrilled but not surprised by Kimmorley’s first place finish.
“We’ve always thought of Tom as our secret weapon, but now the cat is well and truly out of the bag,” he said.
“To have Tom’s creative prowess recognized on a global scale is not only exciting for us as his workmates, but it’s a huge win for our current and future clients to have him leading the charge as our art director.
“Brisbane may be a small place, but we clearly have some of the best creative minds in the world walking among us… one of whom is sitting right next to me.”
Australian creatives dominated the 2016-17 Young Glory leaderboard, with five out of the top 10 teams hailing from Down Under.
