PHDiQ scores only Australasian finalist in Festival of Media

27 February 2013

For immediate release

PHDiQ – scores only Australasian finalist in Festival of Media, Rising Star Award

It’s festival season and the honours and awards are starting to roll in – celebrating amazing work and very talented people both in New Zealand and around the world. Brendan Hewitt of PHDiQ has been selected as one of only five finalists, and the only finalist from Australasia, in The Rising Star Award which recognises the Best Talent Under 30 in media.


This initiative from the Festival of Media Asia sets a new benchmark for aspiring media stars and Hewitt is certainly well on his way to the top. Advised of his success only yesterday, he’s winging his way to Singapore on Friday, to take a brief from Samsung on Sunday 3 March.


With only 24 hours to respond to a brief and squaring off against competitors from Thailand, Singapore and India, Hewitt will pull out all the stops, as he always does for his clients here in New Zealand.


Louise Bond, CEO of Spark Group, is rightfully excited about the upcoming challenge and says, “Brendan Hewitt has been a Rising Star since he walked in PHD’s door in 2010 as a fresh-faced young graduate. We’re not the only ones who think he rocks. Our clients and industry pundits alike consistently praise his strategic nous and the way he nurtures high quality relationships.


“Brendan’s work speaks for itself, garnering awards such as Yahoo! New Zealand Digital Star, NZ Lotteries’ X-Factor and Monteith’s ‘Sorry about the twigs’. Brendan is also a published author with, ‘The future: the Draper and the data’. It’s no wonder he’s been given the nod.”


The response to brief will be judged by Samsung, Sophia Ng from the Singapore Tourism Board, with the jury chaired by John Sintras, Chairman SMG Australia and Director. The winner will be announced at the Festival of Media Asia Awards, on the evening of Tuesday 5th March in Singapore.
