The striking image of a muscly lumberjack body with a John Key face has won NAB’s September Newspaper Ad of the Month.
The Stop the Chop ad calls for action against the government making a new law that will allow people to chop down urban trees without permission. It was created by G2.
Judges Guy Roberts (TBWA) and Peter Ogden (JWT) said: “A great topical ad, perfect for newspapers.”
