Don't really see why you would enter the NY Festival. The statue is ugly. The clios are different. They make a very classy toilet roll holder. Take a dump at Pete Force's house sometime and see what I mean.

The other awards I dont get are D&AD, One Show and Award. Given that their credibility is built on originality, dont you think it is weird that all three awards are the same idea? Wonder who copied who?

While all these guys are away can they decide how to put the value back into Axis.

Just because you don't win doesn't mean it's irrelevant. Maybe the standards exceed the general output of most agencies.

Toby, bring back the pic of you as a maori warrior. This new PR pic blows. It looks like you're out of a David Fincher film.

Imagine if any of these imports actually did any work - being away at awards all the time would bring the whole industry to a halt.

You mean Toby supplied that picture as an 'official' one? I'm amazed.

I thought it was just the CB guys messing around in Photoshop in an idle moment.


Anyone care to deconstruct the shot? What was the SMP?

awards are a joke, everyone's got them. they are worthless.

my mate who judged D&AD got over 10 cash bribes. you do the math, one larger than 10k in pound. i was a little shocked, but it does not surprise.

you lot do the maths.

awards are set up by globals to keep them a float.
