CAANZ AXIS Awards honour creative talents

EMBARGOED UNTIL 10:30PM THURSDAY, 31 March, 2011


Media Release 31 March 2011

The top award of Grand AXIS at the 2011 CAANZ AXIS awards was presented to Colenso BBDO for their work on Yellow Chocolate for Yellow Pages Ltd.

The CAANZ AXIS Awards honour the creative talents of the industry and are a celebration of the year’s most exciting and original ideas.

CAANZ President Sandy Moore said the work on show was testament to agencies’ collective ability to rise to the challenge and prove how powerful great ideas can be.

“AXIS remains the pinnacle of creativity in New Zealand. It rewards ideas that have captured the imagination of New Zealanders, ideas that have effected change, and ideas that have ultimately achieved business results for our clients.”

Creative Business of the Year was awarded to Yellow Pages Ltd.

“CAANZ’s vision is for insight and creativity to be commonly accepted by clients as integral components of their business. Vehicles like the AXIS awards play a key role in bringing that vision to life,” said Mr Moore.

Capital City Films won this year’s Production Company of the Year and the Lifetime Achievement Award was awarded to David Bell, of AXIS AdSchool fame.

The Emerging Talent award, which acknowledges those who have recently entered the industry, was presented to Kia Heinnen and Zoe Hawkins from Colenso BBDO, whose early work has begun to gain attention in the industry.

This year’s judging panel, made up of 50 local creatives and 3 international judges – Andy Fackrell, Executive Creative Director of 180 Amsterdam, Dejan Rasic, Executive Creative Director of Colman Rasic – Sydney and Bryan Rowles, Creative Director of 72andSunny – Los Angeles were all highly impressed with the quality of work submitted.
