Ogilvy tops Agency League by honouring McCullum

The February edition of News Works' Agency of the Month served up a close battle, with both Ogilvy and M&C Saatchi putting forward impressive pieces for consideration.

After assessing the effectiveness of all the print advertisements in front of them, the panel of judges – consisting of Dave King from M&C Saatchi, Ben Polkinghorne from Colenso BBDO, and Angus Hennah of Ogilvy & Mather – came to the consensus that Ogilvy's '302  legend' cricket ad for Rebel Sport was the deserving winner.

The panel felt the ad offered a topical angle that made it perfectly suited to the newspaper channel, and also commended the fast turnaround and timely response that ensured the ad featured the day after Brendon McCullum scored his record-breaking total in the test match against India. 

Coming a close second was M&C Saatchi's 'Don't drink and fry' ad for the NZ Fire Service, which the judges felt was "perfect for the target market" and worked well in the newspaper medium.   


These results see Ogilvy sitting above DraftFCB and DDB at the top of the Agency League, with only one month to go.
