No hang ups at NAB ad award

Despite a large number of Rugby World Cup-related press ads dominating September’s newspapers, .99 has won this month’s NAB Newspaper Ad award with its call plan ad for Vodafone.

The judges said “it only took a few words to simply explain what it’s all about – no asterisks or long copy and nice humour too.”
