12th AIMIA Awards

Awards_Logo_small.jpgLast night was 12th AIMIA awards which was held in very hot Adelaide.

With 21 awards there were quite a few winners but for me the three main categories were:

Best Entertainment
Winner: TEQUILA\: Wedding Crashers online campaign (well deserved)

Best Interactive Advertising
TEQUILA\: Life On Mars (again well deserved)

Best Integration with an Offline Advertising Campaign
Clemenger Proximity: Online launch - a.o taste

The full list of winners with links can be found here.

Worst speech would have to go to Massmedia who couldn't resist trying to sell themselves on the night and ended up sounding like cheeseburgers.

Note: we (Soap Creative) didn't win anything but it's hard to go up against Wedding Crashers and Think Tank.

Creative Showcase grand prix awards

Went along to a reasonably modest ICA night in London last night, it was the Creative Showcase grand prix awards - run by the IAB.

The awards were based on the monthly showcase 12 winners for the 2005 year - judging consistes of a number of new media professionals who vote on entries by agencies or individuals, there's a winner and two runner ups - it's a good view of the (mainly) UK industry as -it-happens.

Some really nice work there, but anyway the winner this time around was London with their NSPCC banners and overlays - which were featured right here on bannerblog in december.

Second were Glue with their Navy campaign and third was a collaboration of Agency Republic, Glue and AKQA with the Make Poverty History. I'm guessing Hamish will be able to point the way to these. nice one.
