No October winner, but FOUR’s ‘home of not rugby’ takes home NAB merit certificate
By

Rugby World Cup advertising continued to dominate throughout October, some say to the detriment of both quality and originality. And after being told to ‘touch pause engage’ one time too many, the NAB judges have decided no one deserves the October Newspaper Ad of the Month award. The obvious headlines and groan inducing puns featured across too much of the material – at times to the detriment of art direction.

A journey in print: Publicis Mojo takes monthly honour with four-page Speight’s effort
By

There’s been a fair bit of discussion about the current relationship status of Speight’s and Publicis Mojo after the Aussie branch appeared to take charge on a couple of recent TVCs and Shine nabbed some project work that will see it continuing the Southern Finishing School series. But apparently it’s still business as usual and in some slightly better Speight’s-related news, a four-page ad promoting the Speight’s Coast to Coast has won the February NAB Newspaper Ad of the Month award.

Those NAB ad of the month judges are obviously pretty tough nuts to crack, because Jeneal Rohrback from Marsden Inch, Sue Worthington from Indiego and Jon Coles from .99 decided not to select a winner for the October round. But in true NCEA fashion, they did give DraftFCB’s ‘Night test drive’ ad for Mini a Highly Commended acknowledgement.

For the second year in a row, DDB walked away with a cool $10,000 after the Sky Arts Channel Mark Rothco spot took out the Newspaper Ad of the Year prize last week (this Throaties spot won the 2009 edition). And the highlight of the night—aside, of course, from the big grand finale announcement, the delectable nibbles and the burly guard who was keeping watch over the silver briefcase on the table that was filled with $10,000 cash—had to be the Q+A video with Chuck Porter, the convenor of judges at this year’s event and co-founder of award-hogging US ad agency Crispin Porter + Bogusky.
