MPA shows off the speed of magazines

This morning, those in the industry were reminded that print isn't as slow as slow as what everyone suggests it is. Before any online publications released any information on the Axis Awards, the Magazine Publishers Association (MPA) had a specially printed magazine delivered to all the agencies that were in attendance. And, as an added bonus, the delivery also inlcuded a much-needed Red Bull.

DDB releases its stalkerish musical ode to Y&R—UPDATED

The tenth and final Axis love letter has been released ahead of the show on March 6, and it's another doozy, with DDB's Mark Lorrigan harnessing the immense power of song to showcase his intense and probably illegal devotion to Y&R in 'It ain't stalking if I love you'.

Don't read the comments: Y&R hearts DDB, offers mouth kisses and even some 'under the shirt stuff'

The creative oneupmanship is in full effect for the Axis 'Share the Love' campaign, with some very entertaining inter-agency love letters being sent. And the penultimate clip from Y&R, which takes a leaf out of Jimmy Kimmel's Celebrities Read Mean Tweets by getting DDB staff to read mean blog posts about their work—followed by some nice ones at the end—has just been released.

A matter of fact: Barnes, Catmur & Friends goes into bat for Special Group

Last week Special Group made Barnes Catmur & Friends a quilt of love as part of the Axis Call for Entries campaign. And, after a slight delay due to 'censorship issues', Barnes, Catmur & Friends has returned the favour, with creative managing partner Paul Catmur embracing the confrontational interviewer within, aggressively singing the praises of his fellow indie and probably ensuring his agency will never be bought by WPP.

Special Group harnesses the power of needlework to tell the tale of Barnes, Catmur & Friends

In the early days of America, it's thought the colonisers gave blankets to the native Americans as gifts, but added in a surprise in the form of smallpox. And Special Group, as part of the Axis Share the Love campaign, has done something similar (without the murderous intent) by creating a "nine-panel, hand-crafted tribute" to Barnes, Catmur & Friends and lacing it with a dose of good-natured cheekiness.

Creative love substituted for creative competition as Axis finalists announced

The creative love may have been shared in the call for entries campaign, but now the creative competition begins, because the 2014 Axis finalists have been announced and Colenso BBDO/Proximity is in a familiar position atop the list with 56 nods, followed closely by DraftFCB on 54, DDB on 37 and Saatchi & Saatchi on 30. Plus: Clemenger BBDO's new Axis logo.

We wish you a merry Axis: CAANZ keeps the changes rolling with new dates and categories

After a fairly controversial 2012, CAANZ and a bunch of senior ad folk engineered a few big changes to this year's Axis proceedings to make the awards, as Colenso BBDO's Nick Garrett said, a more collegial, more credible and more celebratory event that aimed to show the business community how influential creativity could be. And now CAANZ has announced some more changes to the programme for 2014.

Axis: a year in the life of Kiwi advertising

As evidenced by the Axis exhibition in the Viaduct Events Centre last week, it's good to see all the work done in one year in one place. And Saatchi & Saatchi and Flying Fish did just that as part of the Axis festivities, with a clip showing some of the quality video content created by local agencies and directors in 2012/2013.
