Editor News Make a Comment

SYDNEY, Saturday: Alan Jones and Angelo An, from FCB New Zealand, were crowned Creative Team of the Year at the 44th AWARD Awards, held in Sydney last night. Special NZ also stood out.

The FCB NZ team had been responsible for award-winning campaigns including Waka Kotahi’s Toll Booth and Future News for the Road to Zero launch, How To Do Nothing for The Lowdown and Through my Eyes anti speeding campaign for Waka Kotahi.

FCB CCOs Leisa Wall and Peter Vegas said: “ It’s no mean feat to get one great piece of work out in the world these days, but to have success with multiple winning campaigns in the short span of 12 months is a true achievement.

“We’re thrilled for Alan & Angelo as they deserve all the prizes now after all the mahi they have put in. Don’t bother calling them about a job, they’re too busy working on their next great campaign.” 

The Creative Team of the Year award recognises creative talent in the Asia-Pacific region and honours those who’ve achieved Bronze, Silver or Gold across multiple campaigns. Jones and An were the only creative team from New Zealand to be considered for the award.

“Don’t bother calling them about a job, they’re too busy working on their next great campaign.”

FCB Aotearoa also won three Bronze awards for Waka Kotahi’s Toll Booth, three Silvers for Te Hiringa Hauora’s How to Do Nothing, a Silver for Waka Kotahi’s Through My Eyes and a Bronze for Survive the Drive with NZ Police.

A total of 59 Gold pencils were awarded across 26 different campaigns, with a further 101 Silver and 187 Bronze pencils awarded.

Special NZ wins 7 Golds
Special New Zealand took home seven Gold across two campaigns: The Last Performance and Summer Never Sleeps.

Special was crowned Agency Network of the Year, having taken home 11 Golds across their agencies. This award recognises specific agency network brands instead of only holding companies, therefore can be awarded to anyone that has multiple city offices.
