EditorNews Make a Comment

CAANZ and Flying Fish have named the eight agency bands to contest the 2014 Battle of the Ad Bands (which also celebrate the 50th anniversary of The Beatles visit to NZ).

With reigning two-time champions Barnes, Catmur & Friends officially out of the running this year, the coveted Botab championship title is well and truly anybody’s.

This year’s competitors are:

  • Pegasus and The Job Numbers – Colenso BBDO
  • The Gypsy Thieves – DDB
  • Foote Cone – FCB
  • Building 7 – Flying Fish
  • OG Villains – Ogilvy & Mather
  • The Chased – OMD
  • The Expendables 5 – Sugar & Partners, along with String Theory
  • Dooya – WhybinTBWA/DAN

The 2014 Botab official charity is the New Zealand Music Foundation, which will be auctioning off three “stunning prizes” on the night involving Neil Finn, Justin Timberlake, Simon Gault and Dave Dobbyn. “We’ll be announcing these exclusive music industry gems soon,” says CAANZ comms exec Nicky Monera. “You won’t want to miss out.”

Botab’s 2014 sponsors are Fish, Citroen DS, Apex Insurance, Radio Hauraki, Liquid Studios, Mandy Studios, Fuzed, Asahi, Prego & Much Moore Ice Cream.

The one night on the advertising calendar that has nothing to do with advertising is exactly 2 weeks away. Tickets are now on sale on EventFinda here.
