The 35th Annual Caxton Awards and Seminar were held in Coolum, Queensland on the weekend, showcasing the best newspaper ads Australasia had to offer this year. Print isn’t dead, it just smells funny when it comes off the press.
Only seven agencies won Caxtons, out of 17 that were dished out. Topping the winners’ circle is DDB NZ with four awards, all for Sky TV ‘Alien vs Predator’. It ate the competition in these categories: Best Campaign, Media/Entertainment/Telco/IT, Best Art Direction and Best Photography.
Marketforce and 303, both from Perth, also won hat-tricks.
