When it comes to media and advertising consumption, the denizens of ad land aren't normal. While the rest of the world does everything it can to avoid pre-rolls and 60-second TV spots—however creative they might be—those employed by the advertising and marketing machine tend to be far more enamoured with promotional messaging. So, in an effort to remind ad people that their undying love for all forms of advertising might not be shared by everyone, Adshel has launched a campaign that encourages ad people to take a quiz to determine how in love they are with advertising.
The Outdoor Media Association of NZ (OMANZ) has reported another period of growth for the Out of Home industry, with gross media revenue for Q1 increasing by 2.3 percent over the same period in 2013, reaching $15.8 million for the quarter.

Adshel has unveiled a new summer appeal poster based on Colenso BBDO's idea that won the Creative Challenge in 2012. The new poster was initially meant to employ DraftFCB's winning concept from last year's competition, but the agency could not complete the poster in time for the summer appeal. Fortunately, Running with Scissors (the agency that currently holds the Surf Life Saving account) stepped in to update Colenso's concept.
