This year has seen a record number of entries into the annual CAANZ Axis Awards, which recognise creative excellence in New Zealand. Entries are up by 40 compared to 2009.
The preliminary judging has been carried out by some of New Zealand’s leading creative types and now the finalists have been sent off to the international panel.
And the finalists are (drum roll please)...too long to recount here. You can view the full list of finalists here.
Having done particularly well for themselves in the nominations stakes are Liquid Studios, Curious Films, The Sweet Shop and the DDB Group.
The awards will take place on March 25.
