Voting is now open for the inaugural Glossies. See this month's entries below and cast your vote for your favourite magazine ad (see multi-page entries in the gallery here). And remember, there's just one vote per computer.
Each monthly winner will receive a lunch for four on Friday at Vinnies on Jervois Road and, at the end of the monthly competition, the top 20 entries that have scored the most votes will be shortlisted for New Zealand's Best Magazine Ad. This will be judged by a panel of experts and handed out at a special event next year, with the winning team receiving a travel package provided by the MPA valued at $10,000.
On Monday, Whittaker’s launched its latest novelty chocolate-lolly mash up with a chocolatey answer to retro bakesale treat coconut ice. The Coconut Ice Surprise chocolate has a twist though, 20c from each block goes to Plunket – a charity which New Zealanders agree is a worthy cause. However, to relate the chocolate to the charity, Whittaker's has built the campaign around baby gender reveal parties, causing a backlash from the public who argue gender norms have expanded beyond blue for boys and pink for girls.
