Colenso BBDO and Barnes, Catmur & Friends Dentsu had plenty to celebrate over the weekend after being included in APAC Effie Awards winners were announced. Both agencies received recognition on the international stage and ‘Brewtroleum’ stole the night by winning the coveted Grand Effie.
After picking up a coveted Black Pencil last year, Colenso BBDO has kept the bar high, picking up a rare White Pencil at the D&AD Impact Awards 2016.
New Zealand has fared pretty well at Cannes’ third awards show of the week, particularly in the ‘Outdoor’ category, with Colenso BBDO taking out a Grand Prix for ‘Brewtroleum’ and Y&R picking up a gold. A number of silvers and bronzes were also dished out to local agencies in the category.
There will not shortage of pencils in New Zealand’s creative agencies next month, as they continue to dominate the international awards. This time seven agencies are adding 30 wins to the country’s hall of fame.
