Colenso BBDO honoured at Festival of Creativity

Colenso BBDO honoured for effectiveness at 2011 Cannes International Festival of Creativity

Colenso is the first New Zealand agency to win a Creative Effectiveness Lion at the 2011 Cannes International Festival of Creativity.

Introduced for the first time in 2011, the Creative Effectiveness Lions honour creativity which has shown a measurable and proven impact on a client's business and affected consumer behaviour, brand equity, sales, and where identifiable, profit.

Colenso BBDO's "Real Stories" campaign for TVNZ's The Pacific was one of only six international campaigns awarded a Creative Effectiveness Lion. The campaign featured actual letters sent home from soldiers during World War Two and culminated in an aerial dogfight over Auckland's Mission Bay. The results were impressive, with 24% of New Zealanders tuning in to the first episode.

Nick Worthington, Executive Creative Director of Colenso BBDO says: "The Effectiveness Lions showcase the powerful role that creative advertising can play in business. It's a pretty big deal to be one of only six agencies world-wide awarded an Effectiveness Lion." Only entries that were either shortlisted or winners at Cannes Lions in 2010 were eligible to enter into Creative Effectiveness Lions. Colenso Planning Director James Hurman represented New Zealand on the Creative Effectiveness Jury that selected a shortlist of only 10 international campaigns. "All of the entries we looked at were examples of campaigns with amazing commercial results. Our shortlist was made up of campaigns that proved beyond any doubt that the effectiveness result was caused by the creative work," says James Hurman. Alongside the Lion for Creative Effectiveness Colenso picked up a Silver and five Bronze Lions, making it the most awarded New Zealand agency at Cannes this year.
