FCB New Zealand won 2 gold EFFIE awards for their Foodstuffs campaign for Pam’s and the Health Department Mental Health Foundation campaign “Famous People”. The Jamie Oliver campaign for Pam’s was also voted Best in Show.

Generator Bates won a Grand EFFIE for their Wendy’s campaign “Kiwi Dave”.

DDB won a gold in the e-tail/retail category for their “Weak Day Pricing” campaign for McDonald’s. They also won a Silver award for their Cadbury campaign for “Throaties”. WRC added to their group tally, garnering silver and bronze awards for ANZ’s Bonus Bonds “Million Dollar March”.

Just getting through to become a finalist is a “hell of an achievement” says CAANZ Executive Director, Lynne Clifton. The EFFIE program has very clear judging processes and criteria. To become a finalist means you have achieved outstanding results. Winning an award means that the campaign was exceptional. The Gold EFFIE Awards are rare, and treasured.”

Thursday 29 August 2002

EFFIE awards are recognised by advertisers and agencies as the pre-eminent award in the advertising industry – the world standard in measuring the success of an advertising campaign and a demonstration of partnership between agency and client in the creation, management and building of a brand. They are awarded only when smart marketing, advertising and media disciplines have come together to provide true impact in the marketplace and require bullet-proof evidence of marketing and advertising objectives and their subsequent measurement.

EFFIE programs are held in 19 countries on five continents, and represent the pinnacle in advertising effectiveness. Our New Zealand EFFIEs will place our work alongside some of the greatest campaigns the world has ever seen.

CAANZ holds the EFFIE franchise for New Zealand. Television New Zealand is the major sponsor.

EFFIE award winners and case studies will be online from Friday 30 August on
