D&AD Global Student Awards Dominated By Tbwa\Whybin

Tuesday, June 13th, 2006: Jessica Neale and Amy Thexton are the only students from New Zealand to be named as finalists and invited to the prestigious D&AD (Design and Art Direction) Global Student Awards, to be held in London in late June 2006.

Jessica and Amy, art director and copywriter respectively, are both graduates from Auckland University of Technology’s Advertising Creativity course and are currently on placement at TBWA\Whybin, The two talented youngsters entered the awards with two campaigns earlier in the year. One was an anti-discrimination billboard campaign for Age Concern in the UK and the other was a radio campaign for Bertolli Italian Olive Oil.

Both campaigns have been announced as finalists in their respective categories, with the Bertolli campaign up for a first, second or third place. Both will also appear in the full colour hardback awards annual. Launched at the awards ceremony itself and regarded by the industry as the leading showcase for young emerging talent, over 3000 copies are sent to leading business, design and advertising professionals worldwide.

“Jessica and Amy being the only New Zealand finalists is a huge achievement. It demonstrates that we have a pool of real creative talent here in New Zealand and that TBWA\Whybin is good at encouraging and mentoring that talent,” says Andy Blood, Creative Director for TBWA\Whybin. “We’re extremely proud of the girls and hope that they take out a win for the Bertolli campaign at the awards ceremony in London in June.”

Jessica and Amy will fly to London to attend the D&AD New Blood Congress, where they will exhibit their portfolios, attend workshops and go to lectures. They will also be guests at the D&AD Global Student Awards Ceremony on the last night to see whether it’s Gold, Silver or Bronze for their work on the Bertolli campaign!
