6 Jul-05 June Ad of Month Winner
New Zealand Post’s Jersey Stamp newspaper ad is the NAB’s June Ad of Month Winner. The ad was created by Saatchi & Saatchi Wellington and media placed by Total Media.
It was agreed this clever yet simple ad clearly stood out both on the busy news page and on the table of entries. Judges also commented on the quality of creative ads and have set the challenge amongst their creative peers to raise the standard of ‘everyday’ work.
June judges included Andy Blood, Whybin; Steve McCabe, Generator; Simon Yeo, FCB; Richard Beesening, Whybin; and Julie Rutledge, New Zealand Herald. The winning ad will be sponsored into 2006 Axis Awards, and the winning creative team, Steve Cooper and Nigel Richardson from Saatchi, will receive Ticketek vouchers to see a show or concert of their choice.
The ad will also appear in the “What’s New” section of July AdMedia. Advertisers, agencies and member newspapers are encouraged to nominate newspaper ads. All newspaper ads booked through the NAB are eligible to win Ad of Month.
The NAB newspaper creativity awards (Ad of Month) exemplify the NAB’s commitment to excellence in the craft of print advertising. Innovative creative within newspapers is a powerful force that can deliver maximum reach faster than any other medium.
