AUCKLAND, Friday: Saatchi & Saatchi and Global Women won both the Grand Axis and the Grand Prix for TV, Cinema or Online as well as the Special Award for Diversity & Inclusion for International Women’s Day Career Limiting campaign at Axis 2022. 

The dark but humoous film at the centre of the campaign was created by internationally awarded director Anna Mantzaris of Passion Animation Studios, and Saatchi NZ.

Saatchi CCO Steve Cochran said: “It builds on the workplace scenarios Mantzaris conceived for her critically acclaimed short film Enough.

“We are thrilled this work has been so well recognised here at home in the market it was originally created for.

“It’s work we’re all tremendously proud of. Every time it gets attention like this is another opportunity for it to share its message further, which in the end, is what it’s truly about.”

The full awards tally for Saatchi & Saatchi and Global Women included four Golds, a Silver and Bronze in addition to the Special Award for Diversity & Inclusion, Grand Prix and the Grand Axis.

“I love that a child’s fun is at the heart of the idea – the simple stuff of kids being kids and roaming about and exploring the world.”
