According to a list by CAANZ and TVNZ, Colenso BBDO and DDB have 19 finalists. DraftFCB, Clemenger BBDO and Barnes, Catmur and Friends each achieved seven finalists.

Colenso BBDO continues its strong showing from last year when it got 22 finalists. DDB dominated the awards last year, winning for the Steinlager We Believe campaign.

This year's executive judges are the category judges, along with international guests Peter Field and Charlie Robertson. Robertson is the owner of brand strategy consultancy Red Spider.
