Call goes out for Axis awards

AxisNext year is the 30th anniversary of the Axis awards and TBWA/Whybin's Andy Blood and Dave Walden, as well as Rick Osbourne, CEO of CAANZ, are making sure it'll be a right royal nostalgic hooley.

The call for entries goes out on 1 December (entries close on 1 February) and convener of judges Andy Blood has announced that John Hunt, TBWA/Whybin's global creative director, James Dawson Hollis and Bill Wright, CDs at Crispin Porter + Bogusky and Justin Drape, CD at Three Drunk Monkeys Sydney will make up the illustrious judging panel.

Blood is looking for input and information from anyone in the industry who was around in those halcyon days  and is particularly keen to get his hands on some of the winning material.

Says Osbourne: "We intend to celebrate in an appropriate advertising style. We'll be doing everything we can to take a trip down memory lane.”

Head to CAANZ for all the entry criteria. The awards will be held on 25 March.

Edward McKnight used ads on the social media site to target ASB staff as a way of applying for the role of youth and innovation sponsorship manager at the bank. And while McKnight has yet to be offered a job at ASB, it’s a sign that the traditional recruitment process of sending in a CV and crossing your fingers may be in for a shake-up. Hoping to do just that is the new recruitment platform PreviewMe. Set to have its beta version go live early next month, the website hopes to reduce the pain points of both candidates and employers by introducing video to the recruitment process.
