EditorNews Make a Comment

NZ agencies Colenso, DDB, Special Group, Barnes Catmur, ZenithOptimedia and OMD are the Kiwi shops to make the finals for the Campaign Asia-Pacific Australia/New Zealand Agency of the Year.

The NZ Creative Agency of the Year will be contested by Colenso, last year’s winner DDB NZ, and Special Group, while Barnes Catmur & Friends are two of the five on the Australasian indies shortlist

Many categories, however, are dominated by Australian agencies – with Kiwis thin on the ground (for many reasons – awards fatigue being one of them).

The winner list will be preannounced on Friday 27 November and the celebratory gala dinner will be held on Thursday 10 December at The Ritz-Carlton, Singapore.
