Hoi polloi invited to pass creative judgment for AWARD

The 2010 AWARD awards have drawn over two thousand entries across the nine major categories, including the newly created music video, applications, social media, environmental design and branded content. And the organisation responsible for dishing out what are deemed to be Australasia's most prestigious creative awards (and also for creating the call for entries juggernaut known as Ian), is opening up a number of wildcard position on its juries. So, any Kiwis with an interest in the creative arts—whether they be agency folk or plumbers—can apply to be part of the action.

The wildcard jurors will be judging alongside a panel consisting of creative industry leaders from different agencies across Australasia, with individual categories chaired by local creative directors.

“The AWARD Awards signal best practice in communications and how our industry is evolving,” says Craig Davis, AWARD chairman and recently announced head of the Integrated & Earned Media jury at the DA&D awards. “The awards attract ideas from the world of design, advertising and digital communications and we have decided to open a number of wildcard positions across selected juries.”

To be eligible for selection interested individuals need to submit a hundred word note on their suitability for the job and why they would bring a unique and valuable perspective to the judging before Wednesday 3 November.

Applicant judges can be based in Australia, New Zealand or Asia but need to be present at the judging of the awards taking place mid February in Sydney. To enter or for more information, contact Genevieve Murphy on 0282973800 or email your application to Genevieve@communicationscouncil.org.au.

Wish I was there: Contiki's quid-pro-quo approach to working with influencers

Social media stars and influencers are so hot right now, with brands across the world paying sometimes eye-watering sums to have nouveau celebs promote their products. And while this is something of a recent fad, 54-year-old Contiki built its brand on this approach long before it became fashionable. We talk to marketing director Tony Laskey about its latest influencer based campaigns, building relationships and why influencers work so well for Contiki.
