Kiwi up-and-comers take place alongside world's top emerging talent

Back in June, UK's Campaign magazine published a Ltd Edition Emerging Talent Portfolio that showcased "the world's best young creative talent, as chosen by the world's best, er, old talent" and sold it at Cannes this year for 20p a copy. And two Kiwi entries made the top 50, TBWA\'s Agency Plankton and North Shore animation house Cirkus.

Agency Plankton, which consists of Iain Nealie and Tara McKenty, has created a wide range of ambient, interactive, digital and integrated campaigns for TBWA\, including adidas, Tua vs Friday and Absolut Huffer. But their piece de resistance was coming up with a dastardly scheme to raise funds an get to Cannes by issuing a fictional IPO.

Cirkus is also on the rise, having done quite a few international projects, some great work for Skyline Garages and, most recently, an ad featuring talking phones for Telstra Clear in Australia.
