Bright young things: examining the pick of this year's creative crop from Media Design School and AUT

The ideas have been dreamed up, the work has been displayed, the sucking up to creative leaders has been done, the leftover nibbles have presumably been wrapped up in napkins and taken home, and another bunch of advertising students have learned a few tricks to help them into gainful employment. Here are some of the highlights from AUT and Media Design School.

Creative up and comers set for annual show-off sessions

As Whitney so rightly sang, the children are our future. And the ad children from two of the bigger schools are getting set show off the year's work in the hope of securing gainful employment, with AUT holding a function tonight and Media Design School holding its portfolio event next Tuesday (and using the 'reaction faces' of local creative juggernauts to help promote it).

Clemenger double: 'Mistakes' picks up StopPress/MediaWorks TVC of the Year, 'Blazed As' shares craft category spoils with DDB's 'Born to Defy'—UPDATED

Last week, StopPress met with an estimable judging panel in an effort to determine which finalist in the StopPress/MediaWorks TVC of the Year competition was most deserving of this year’s title. Copious head scratching, contemplative groans and a fair bit of imbibing ensued as the judges weighed up the pros and cons of the campaigns over a lunch at Auckland’s Neighbourhood brew bar. And by the end of this highly scientific estimation of the effectiveness of the each campaign, the judges came to a final shortlist of three candidates: ‘Mistakes’ for the New Zealand Transport Agency (NZTA) by Clemenger BBDO, ‘Devil’s Chair’ for NZI by FCB and ‘The People’s Film’ for VW by Colenso BBDO. PLUS: ‘Blazed As’ for the NZTA by Clemenger BBDO and ‘Born to Defy’ for Steinlager by DDB took out the top spots in the craft category.

Saatchi & Saatchi and Media Design School embark on a mission to discover 'digital Columbuses'

A collection of bureaucrats, educators and ad folk gathered together in an old building on the corner of Halsey and Packenham Streets in the Wynyard Quarter this afternoon to eat chicken sandwiches and hear about a new partnership between the Media Design School and Saatchi & Saatchi that will see the creation of a new Graduate School focused on digital innovation—and hopefully add some fuel to the ICT fire in Auckland's innovation precinct.

Attention-seeking MDS ad students block out sun on day of show

Marsden Inch have chucked a generous sum behind the bar so there are drinks, there are nibbles, there are students, and there are portfolios. All that's required to complete the equation are lots of creatives to wander along between 5.30 and 8pm tonight to The Nathan Club on the ground floor of the Nathan Building at
 51 Galway Street,
 Britomart. There's also been a suggestion to bring along a few more of the shit idea bins to the show. So to encourage everyone to be at their biting and incisive best, MDS will have a special limited run of 20 shit idea bins on offer.

See into the future at Media Design School's student showcase

They’re another year older and (definitely) deeper in debt; they’ve been awarded in international student competitions; they’ve won both the NAB and TVNZ national student challenges; they’ve been through the rigours of a retail round robin with several agencies; they recently submitted six weeks of brand new work on various briefs to an industry panel for some tough words and sage advice; and now the Media Design School advertising students are ready to show their wares next Wednesday between 5.30 and 8pm at The Nathan Club, 51 Galway street, Britomart.

Special Group wins ORCA with 91 different ads

Special Group duo Kim Fraser and Sarah Frizzell took the combined Dec/Jan ORCA with their ’91 Days of Summer’ campaign for Streets Ice Cream. They made 91 different ads, turning each day of summer into a national day. "December 4. National Weta Freak Out Day. Nothing says summer like a weta under that thing you just picked up. Is it a giant insect or a tiny brown crayfish?  Doesn't matter, your boyfriend still needs to man up, and grab a glass and a piece of cardboard."
