MDS AdSchool CD Kate Humphries writes: Our end-of-year show invites were held up in Customs (we got them printed by a street vendor in Peru) and we’ve finally got the last of our balloon invites with their prominent prick instruction out yesterday.

“Our apologies if a few of you missed out on the invite, but with Tuesday being a particularly windy day a few – Nick Worthington, Josh Moore, Damon Stapleton and Toby Talbot – balloons ended up going rogue over Auckland.

“So, for those of you whose invite is still flying around the city, the show is next Tuesday from 6-8pm. Free booze, free food and free(ish) teams. This year we’re upstairs at Everybody’s (over Imperial Lane Coffee house) which you can enter either via 7 Fort Street or 44 Queen Street.

A few teams have accepted job offers already, but there’s still plenty of talent on offer because it’s been a vintage year with the class winning 2 Awards for Innovation at AdStars; the topical and main Newsworks Student Awards; having 3 ideas shortlisted for the AKQA Future Lions Awards (despite it being their very first advertising brief!); and finally topping off the year with 7 of their ideas making it onto a longlist of 10 finalists for the Google Student Axis Award (the shortlist for which is being decided Monday week by DDB’s Haydn Kerr, Assignment’s Toby Talbot and Rueben Halpern from Google).

“Any questions regarding the teams, the show, directions to the show, or directions to the free booze at the show, feel free to contact me at
