Against the backdrop of everything that’s going on in the world, advertising awards seem entirely inconsequential but maybe they will give us a little lift in the midst of all the anxiety and reason to celebrate our industry, even if only momentarily.
Needless to say, it has been a crazy couple of weeks with constantly moving goal posts but we’re almost there.
So, next week is Finalists week. Each day from Monday, we’ll announce the Finalists in each category as follows:
Monday – ‘Best of Year’ Creative categories
Tuesday – Media Organisation of the Year; Helen Filov Media Agency of the Year
Wednesday – Supernova of the year; Challenger or Specialist Agency of the Year
Thursday – Ad Person of the Year; Advertiser of the Year
Friday – Agency of the Year
Then all the winners will be revealed on Monday, April 6 at 12 noon.
God (and Mark McGowan) willing, the special Awards edition of Campaign Brief WA magazine will be distributed in that week. We’ve got our fingers crossed WA doesn’t have to move to a total lockdown before then. If it does, we’ll make the issue available online as a PDF.
We will contact the winners to arrange delivery of their framed certificates, depending on what restrictions are in place at that time.
Once again, thanks to our 2020 sponsors, who have been nothing short of amazing in these past couple of weeks. They’re all dealing with plenty of their own shit but their support has been unstinting and unequivocal.
