Clemenger takes out Newspaper Ad of the Month

Editor News Make a Comment

Clemenger BBDO Wellington has won May’s Newspaper Ad of the Month with their NZTA Community Speedo ad. The judges agreed that “the placement of the ad in The Dominion Post was so big and bold, that it defied any reader not to stop and take in the urgency of its message”.

No Special Mentions were awarded so this gives Clemenger five points on the Agency League table.

The judges were Mike Knight (Big Communications), Oriel Davis-Lyons (Colenso BBDO), Dave Bolton (Federation), and Kate Humphries (MDS AdSchool).

The Ad of the Month winning team receive $250 and Agency League points for their agency, which are tallied on a league table to run from 1 July 2014 to 30 June 2015.

Ad of the Month and Agency League also accept entry from newspaper digital ads, as well as newspaper print ads.

News Works’ Ad of the Month and Agency League competition is open to any ad that has appeared on a New Zealand newspaper website or app, or in any print edition. Both digital and print entries vie together for the best monthly accolade, with only one individual ad to be selected top each month – although judges may give special mentions to a number of exceptional ads.

Every monthly winner from 1 July 2014 to 30 June 2015 will automatically be entered into the $10,000 Newspaper Ad of the Year at the end of this year.
