StopPress/MediaWorks TVC of the Year: New World, Vodafone and Sky take top honours

There was intellectual dissection, there were furrowed brows, there were plates of calamari (hopefully the kind from the sea), there were big jugs of beer, there were raised voices, there were occasional bouts of physical violence and, eventually, there was quorum as a panel of esteemed judges chose New World and Colenso BBDO's rather fruity Fruit and Vege Pro as the victor in the StopPress/MediaWorks TVC of the Year, with Vodafone’s Piggy Sue and Sky’s Murmuration second and third. PLUS: other category winners for craft, degree of difficulty and clever use of TV.

When colonialism meets commercialism: Sky and ANZ aim to spark interest in the Commonwealth Games—UPDATED

There's no better way to celebrate centuries of oppressive colonialism than with a series of sporting contests. Thankfully, we've got the Commonwealth Games for that. And while they might not be quite as prestigious (or popular) as the Olympics, official broadcaster Sky TV and NZ Olympic Committee sponsor ANZ are doing all they can to draw attention to the upcoming Glasgow games.

'Grown-up' 2degrees maintains its mascot, sets sights on richer pickings

When clients shack up with a new agency there's a tendency to torch the previous work and start afresh. 2degrees and its new partner Special Group certainly took a different approach with their recent business push, but it's kept Rhys Darby on as the frontman and maintained the quirky, colloquial and self-reflexive style of the previous work for the pair's first big brand ad.

Sky and DDB illustrate the wonders—and dangers—of portability

Sky launched Sky Go, the long-awaited update to its online and catch-up service iSky, in October last year. And, after a fair bit of social media activity to promote the new website and mobile apps, it's now launched a print and TV campaign via DDB that shows how easy—and potentially perilous—it is for subscribers to 'Watch On'.
