Slick campaign wins big for MediaCom New Zealand

Best of the best recognised in Media Awards

Innovation and smart thinking were applauded at the annual CAANZ Media Awards held this evening.

The Communications Agencies Association of New Zealand (CAANZ) hosted the awards at a function in Auckland to showcase the best that advertising agency media teams and suppliers bring to clients’ campaigns.

The supreme award, Best in Show, was won by Mediacom New Zealand for its outstanding work in respositioning and revitalising Brylcreem. Its campaign “Fight Hair Crime” was crucial in turning Brylcreem into a brand desired and used by younger men.

Judging Convenor, Barry Williamson, said the judging panel was pleased with the standard and number of entries in this year’s awards.

He said entry numbers have more than doubled in the past few years. This year there were 122 entries compared with 60 in 2002.

“This reflects the media agencies’ pride in their work and the fact there are some great campaigns out there which produce strong commercial results for clients.

“Those awards which stood out from their peers, were those which linked strategy and objectives to deliver a result far greater than was thought possible,” said Mr Williamson.

Overall, 11 gold and 17 silver trophies were presented at the awards evening.

In the other two top awards, spark was named the Media Agency of the Year and The Internet Bureau was named the Media Personality of the Year.

The Internet Bureau wins Media Personality of the Year

The team at The Internet Bureau has won the Personality of the Year award at the 2005 CAANZ Media Awards.

This Communication Agencies Association of New Zealand (CAANZ) award recognises the outstanding contribution made by The Internet Bureau team to the media industry. The industry as a whole has benefited from the passion and innovation of The Internet Bureau team and this award recognises their commitment.

The Internet Bureau was born out of the success of InterACTION. John Stewart set up InterACTION in 1998 to develop websites and online campaigns.

Such were the achievements of InterACTION, that by 2000 a number of advertising agencies were approaching it to enlist its help with client campaigns.

The Internet Bureau was formed to specialise in planning, buying and managing online campaigns for other agencies.

In the past five years it has grown to be the largest independent provider of online advertising services in New Zealand.

It has a team of eight online media planner and buyers, headed up by John Schofield and Deborah Davenport.

It has planned and placed online advertising for more than 250 companies on behalf of a number of the country’s leading advertising agencies.

The Internet Bureau team members were also key drivers in establishing an online audience measurement standard for New Zealand, in conjunction with CAANZ and the Online Publishers Group.
