Who's it for: Meridian by Assignment Group and Perendale

Why we like it: Wells works very well as a quirky Meridian mascot and manages to spread its renewable gospel in a non-preachy, sensible and entertaining way. Plus, it shows off some of the best bits of New Zealand and there's a pretty good story behind the ad too.

Who's it for: NZ Book Council by Colenso BBDO and Octane Digital

Why we like it: Much like the previous powerful effort for NZ Book Council, Going West, the time-consuming paper artistry on display for the follow up well and truly captures the attention and shows how books can shape lives.
