BOTAB 2013 gets set to shred

The most important night on the advertising calendar looms once again. And if the Battle of the Ad Bands registration poster is any gauge, it looks like it's going to be a twerk fest this Thursday at the Kings Arms Tavern. So make sure you get your tickets here

Barnes Catmur & Friends' Friends Electric were the worthy winners of the CAANZ/Flying Fish event last year (and they're responsible for the creative this year), so, as the poster asks, "will they back it up like Miley or is it somebody else's turn?"

This year's theme is Big Day Out, and bands will have 15 minutes to perform their magic. Shihad frontman John Toogood will MC the event (and bands will also be performing a Shihad song).

It doesn’t take much research to find articles about the changing faces of women in advertising – and yes, things are changing. But the casual sexism, the call-outs and the cover-ups have sparked a different kind of debate. Is misogynistic advertising a thing of the past, or do seeds of it still exist? To answer that, I’ve looked at different portrayals of women to see how things were then…and now.
