Facebook’s Mark D’Arcy on Colenso’s double at the Studio Awards and why Kiwi agencies punch above their weight

As in 2013, Facebook again only handed out two of its coveted Blue Awards at this year’s edition of the Studio Awards. The difference this year, however, was that one of the Blue Awards—the Facebook for Good award— was awarded to an agency for work done for a not-for-profit organisation. And the emergence of this change came with good news for Colenso BBDO/Proximity, as the agency won the first gong in the newly created category for the ‘Trial by Timeline’ campaign, which was executed for Amnesty International. PLUS: Facebook’s chief creative officer Mark D’Arcy chats to us about why Kiwi agencies are so good at advertising on digital platforms.
