Business mixed with pleasure in inter-agency football and basketball comps

Football fever (and football-related advertising fever) is ramping up as Brazil gets ready to host the World Cup in June. And there was a bit of fancy footwork in New Zealand last week when a selection of Auckland agencies put down their iPhones and laced up for the inaugural CAANZ soccer tournament. Plus: agencies also skive off to play basketball for TRN's 3 on 3.

Creative love substituted for creative competition as Axis finalists announced

The creative love may have been shared in the call for entries campaign, but now the creative competition begins, because the 2014 Axis finalists have been announced and Colenso BBDO/Proximity is in a familiar position atop the list with 56 nods, followed closely by DraftFCB on 54, DDB on 37 and Saatchi & Saatchi on 30. Plus: Clemenger BBDO's new Axis logo.

Pitch (im)perfect: managing a pitch

For some, a pitch is the most efficient method of choosing an agency partner. For others, it’s an overly expensive, time-consuming beauty parade. CAANZ has conducted two surveys to see how local agencies view the pitching process. And the results show there’s plenty of room for improvement, says chief executive Paul Head.

The comical collegiality continues in Axis call for entries campaign, as The Beacons takes aim at media innovation

The bar for call for entries campaigns has risen significantly in recent years, with the likes of DraftFCB's 'The real judge of advertising is the consumer' campaign for the 2011 Effies and TBWA\'s 'Results Don't Lie' effort this year standing out. And there are a couple more good ones bubbling away at the moment for the Axis Awards and the newly rejigged Beacon Awards.

As 2013 BOTAB looms, 2012 winners Friends Electric release new single, change name, give local '70s classic the Krautrock treatment

As part of last year's Battle of the Ad Bands, the winning band, Barnes Catmur & Friends' Friends Electric, ate the 50 gallons of personalised ice cream and drove the Audi slightly above the speed limit. They were also given a recording session at Neil Finn's Roundhead Studios and had a music video filmed. So, as the industry gears up for this year's musical showdown tonight at the Kings Arms, what better time to reveal the fruits of that labour.

We wish you a merry Axis: CAANZ keeps the changes rolling with new dates and categories

After a fairly controversial 2012, CAANZ and a bunch of senior ad folk engineered a few big changes to this year's Axis proceedings to make the awards, as Colenso BBDO's Nick Garrett said, a more collegial, more credible and more celebratory event that aimed to show the business community how influential creativity could be. And now CAANZ has announced some more changes to the programme for 2014.

Probe Toby: TBWA\'s chief creative officer agrees to live lie detector test for 'Results don't lie' climax, asks for reader questions

Whybin\TBWA’s ‘Results Don’t Lie’ campaign for the 2013 New Zealand Effie Awards put a few creative big-wigs from New Zealand’s advertising industry in a dark room, gave them lie detector tests and asked them about the legitimacy of their most awarded campaigns. The results have been comical and controversial in equal measure and, with awards night looming, the agency has stepped it up a notch, announcing that one of its own—​chief creative officer Toby Talbot—will take to the stage for a live polygraph test as part of the evening's proceedings.
