Local Industry Coverage

Aside from Campaign Brief and B&T, there is not much in the way of Australian based ad industry blogs. Thank god for sites like Ad-rag. Fairfax also had a dabble for its Cannes coverage last year which was commendable, however I thought I'd highlight B&Ts latest effort, and that is to use Flickr, the photo sharing site from Yahoo for all its Paparazzi shots of local industry events.

And lets face it, we all love getting our mugs in lights, it ranks second after winning an award ;) We look forward to the coverage from Cannes 2006.

Bannerblog in Creative Review


Thanks Hamish for pointing out that Bannerblog is mentioned in the March issue of Creative Review.

Funny how not one Australian magazine/website has shown any interest in Bannerblog even after we sent them the required press release. I've checked out pits and we don't stink, so what's the story?

We are the Winners


We won our category for Best Interactive blog in the Ad-rag Battle of the Ad blogs. Thanks to all that voted.

As with all advertising competitions cheating was rife. Luckily we had enough friends to see us though and didn't have to run around all the internet cafes. The graphs below show the before and after multiple votes were removed.

Best Online/Interactive Blogs


Looks like Netzkobold voted for himself 61 times! Very subtle. But everyone else in our category played a fair game.

See the full comp results here.

200 banners!

We've now posted over 200 banners. It'd be 500 by now if we had more support from agencies. (hint hint)

We're looking at 2006 as being "Year of the Banner".

Chuck Norris is also in talks about becoming an offical spokesman for the the site.

Become an Editor

BannerBlog wants you! {Insert picture of a guy in stars and stripes pointing the finger} as an editor!

We are looking for another 3-4 people to become regular contributors to the main blog.

No pay, no impressive titles and there is no corner office with a pinball machine but you will get a bannerblog email and some Subway stamps.

Please send a brief email to Submit [at] explaining why you want to be an editor.
