Blood on the floor for Art of the Envelope awards

EnvelopeAndy Blood, Partner and Group Executive Creative Director at TBWA\Whybin, will be stepping up to plate to judge the entries for the 2009 Art Of The Envelope awards, which take place on 26 November at Fables, Newmarket.

Huffer founders Dan Buckley and Steve Dunstan will MC the event.

Fiona McKay-Woolley from New Zealand Post Targeted Communications says: “We’re chuffed to have twisted the venerable Mr Blood’s arm to help judge this year’s entries and look forward to announcing the finalists in three weeks’ time."

Until then, however, head to and vote for your monthly favourite.

genesisTony Clewett and Rob Banks from DraftFCB won the October round of Art of the Envelope with their entry ‘Zip Head’ for Genesis Energy’s Big Thinking Business Series and Hayden Ricketts was the lucky October online voter chosen at random to receive a $500 prize.
