SAATCHI & SAATCHI TAKES OUT B&T NZ AGENCY OF THE YEAR


Saatchi & Saatchi has taken out Australian trade mag B&T's New Zealand Agency of the Year title for the second year in a row, while Saatchi & Saatchi Interactive NZ was named Digital Agency of the Year in a lunchtime ceremony held in Sydney yesterday. Saatchi ECD Mike O'Sullivan (pictured) was there to accept the award.
The Australian Agency of the Year title went to BMF Sydney, as well as the Direct Agency of the Year award.
Lowe Hunt Sydney was named Creative Agency of the Year while its brilliant 'LynxJet' work for Unilever won Campaign of the Year.
NSW Agency of the Year went to Saatchi and Saatchi and DDB took out Victorian Agency of the Year.
Marketforce Perth (where Kiwi expat Andrew Tinning is ECD) took the Other States Agency of the Year award for the second-year running while cummins&partners Brisbane was named Emerging Agency of the Year.
AWARD’s trans Tasman co-chairmen Paul Prince and Philip Putnam received the Personality of the Year accolade for their amazing feat in transforming the creative organisation over the last year. Auckland based Prince, who could not be there to receive the award, said that Darryn Devlin, his AWARD co-chairman until June this year, also deserved recognition for leading the drive to independence.
