AUCKLAND, Today: Colenso BBDO has earned the prestigious title of Pacific Agency of the Year from Cannes Lions. Their remarkable achievement includes a lion haul of 10 awards, with the Grand Prix Lion notably awarded for their ingenious “Phone It In” campaign for Skinny.
In this innovative campaign, Colenso BBDO transformed out-of-home placements into open-sourced radio scripts, enabling New Zealanders to turn their mobile phones into radio recording studios.
