2006 CAANZ Media Awards Results


The 2006 CAANZ Media Awards has seen OMD walk away with the coveted ‘Best in Show’ award for its “Get Sponsored by Coruba” campaign and Starcom named “Agency of the Year”.

The awards, held last night at Auckland’s Sky City, acknowledge and reward the best strategic insights in the media industry.

This year saw a record number of entries –150, up from 116 in 2005. New categories were also introduced – including “Best Long Term Strategic Campaign”, “Best Response Driven Campaign” and “Media Brand of the Year”. The 2006 Awards also saw a revamped judging process involving 51 of the industry’s top communications and marketing experts.

The judges chose OMD’s Coruba campaign as “Best in Show” because, “the entry identified real consumer insights appropriate to the issues being faced by the brand. OMD came up with a totally fresh idea that was clearly outside normal industry thinking.”

Overall the campaign won 5 gold awards on the night including “Best Use of Research and Consumer Insight” and “Best Use of Sponsorship”.

Commenting on Starcom’s win as ‘Best Agency of the Year” the judges said the agency was clearly investing today for future development and growth in their media business. They said the entry showed a strong financial performance, achieved during a period of major expansion within the agency.
