Editor News Make a Comment

Entries opened today for the 2015 $10,000 Newspaper Ad of the Year award, the only award that “inflates both egos and bank balances and the largest cash prize”.

As well as the $10,000 cash for 2015 Ad of the Year, this year’s awards include six other categories: best topical, best digital, best craft (art), best craft (copy), best media thinking, and best news brand campaign recognising excellence in integrated campaigns across print and digital newspaper platforms.

This year’s judges include a NZ creative panel of ECDs, a NZ media panel, and international judges who will make the final call on the $10,000 ad.

Established in 2005, the annual Newspaper Advertising Awards recognise creative and media excellence in newspaper and digital news site advertising. Last year’s winner was DDB for its VW ad, The Beetle, on sale.

Entry is free, and any ad that has run in NZ newspapers or on newspaper brand websites between 1 July 2014 and 30 June 2015 is eligible.

Entrants have until 5pm on Friday 7 August to upload entries at www.newspaperawards.co.nz.

Winners will be announced in Auckland on Thursday 1 October.
