It's one of the industry's great ironies: most advertising agencies very rarely take their own medicine and advertise. But FCB is an exception to that rule and it's once again showing it believes in the power of brand-building by showcasing some of the work that its long-standing research into Kiwi Cultural Codes has led to.
While we slept, Colenso BBDO added to its gong collection, with four Lions awarded to Pedigree’s ‘SelfiStix’. Saatchi & Saatchi also made the scoreboard with a Bronze Lion and New Zealand's success looks to continue with more finalists announced.
Colenso BBDO is the first New Zealand agency to make it onto the winner's board with a Bronze Lion picked up in the Health and Wellness category. It's since received six mentions in shortlists overnight alongside FCB, DDB and Saatchi & Saatchi.
Vodafone DreamLab, which launched in New Zealand last week, is encouraging people to donate their phone's processing power to help fast-track cancer research. In a campaign by FCB, it's showing Kiwis all they need to do is download the DreamLab app and turn it on while their phones charge overnight.
The Commercial Communications Council has released the finalists for the upcoming Axis Awards and it’s set to be Colenso BBDO’s night for the second year running as it makes the list 80 times. The agency is followed by DDB Group’s 53 mentions, Ogilvy & Mather’s 41, Clemenger BBDO Wellington’s 37 and FCB’s 33. We check out some of the work set to score on the night.
