Whittaker’s and Assignment Group have been successfully beating the patriotic, family-owned, challenger brand drum for many years. But, due to New Zealand’s International Inferiority Complex (IIS), everyone knows that anything with Kiwi provenance needs a ringing foreign endorsement before it can be considered a true success and Whittaker’s has got a good one in the form of UK celebrity chef and unashamed chocolate lover Nigella Lawson, who has signed on to promote the new five roll refined Creamy Milk Chocolate—and give the Swiss a bit of a hurry up.
In the Editing category, Capital City Films took a silver for Frucor’s ‘Ladders’, Robber’s Dog took bronze for DDB and Volkswagen’s ‘Milk Run’, while Curious came away with two bronzes, one for Liam Finn’s Guide to New Zealand for Tourism New Zealand and the other for Nike’s ‘The Tomic Incident’; in Visual Craft, Capital City Films and Sky took gold for ‘Leafblower’ and silver for Frucor’s Ladders, while Flying Fish picked up a bronze for Vodafone’s ‘In With the New’; and in the Direction section, Capital City Films took another gold with ‘Leafblower’ and three other bronzes were handed out, one for Capital City Films and Frucor’s ‘Ladders’, one for The Sweet Shop and Lotto’s ‘Lucky Dog’ and one for Film Construction’s ‘ALAC Sam’.
Capital City Films has been rewarded for an impressive array of work in past 12 months with the Production Company of the Year award, after winning a host of two golds two silvers for a bronze for Sky and DDB’s ‘Leafblower’ and Colenso and V’s ‘Ladders’.
Colenso is at the top of its creative game at the moment and it’s certainly walking the talk when it comes to devising big ideas that get brands talked about by consumers. And while Yellow Pages is wrestling with a few rather large financial demons at present, the pair’s impressive award-winning run continued last night at Vector Arena, when Yellow Chocolate was awarded the Grand Axis, the Titanium gold Axis and the Integrated gold Axis at the 2011 CAANZ Axis awards.
