The Agency won the Platinum Grand Prix for its NAB 'Break Up' campaign. The judges also awarded the campaign three Gold and two Silver AME awards. The NAB 'Honesty' campaign won two Bronze awards, the Bupa 'A Healthier You' campaign won one silver award and the Carlton Draught 'Slo Mo' campaign was awarded a Bronze gong.
The Asian Marketing Effectiveness Awards (AMEs) is the world's largest and the Asia Pacific region's most important marketing effectiveness festival. In 2012 some 971 papers were entered from 21 countries and shortlisted to 115 finalists.

Clemenger BBDO Melbourne CEO Peter Biggs says the awards are important for both the Agency and for its clients: "In Shanghai, it was also acknowledged the calibre of our work was of the highest global standard and further builds the case that the most original creative work is also the most effective," Biggs said.

Clemenger BBDO Melbourne Executive Planning Director Paul Rees-Jones was in Shanghai to collect the awards. "For the past couple of days at the AMEs we've been talking about bravery, not just at a marketing level but across a whole organisation and I don't believe there's a more worthy example of this than what the team at NAB has achieved with the Agency together with 'Break Up'. This is an idea that's captured both the bank's and the public's imagination delivering a commercial and cultural result we haven't seen before in this category," Ree-Jones said.
