Special Group heats up, as AWARD Awards announce 29 Kiwi finalists

Special Group has managed to get itself a spot alongside BMF and The Monkeys as a finalist for Creative magazine's coveted Hotshop Awards, while Finch and Curious got the Hotshop nod in the production categories. And in the AWARD nominations, DDB Group picked up the most finalists with seven, followed by Colenso BBDO and The Sweet Shop with six each. In the craft categories, Finch received seven finalist nominations, Thick as Thieves three and Curious Film also received a nod for its poignant Helena's story, made for the New Zealand Breast Cancer Foundation.

The Australisian awards set out to reward the companies and individuals who are creating innovative solutions for their clients by pioneering fresh styles and new strategies across a range of disciplines including advertising, design, digital, and post-production. It also recognises exemplary craftsmanship and execution, as well as innovative thinking.

AWARD chairman Craig Davis says: "This year, the Finalists in Digital outnumbered Film & Video, Print, Poster & Outdoor again highlighting the impact of technologies on creative industries.

"AWARD champions commercial creativity and will again be exhibiting the best of the work during the annual Circus festival March 27-29 in the lead up to the AWARD night. We look forward to sharing both events with you."
