It's been especially fun judging work that emerges from local insights, yet can be appreciated by people all over the world."

The main category winners from Australia and New Zealand are:

Interactive Lotus

Andy Flemming_Adfest3.jpgI thought I'd lost my passport this morning, and after a brief, but quite dramatic few minutes I managed to find it in my bag along with a strip of Nurofen Plus.

To be honest, I was more relieved to find the painkillers as a passport can't dent a hangover the size of the one I woke up with. Most of the judges have been out until late, so the thought of sitting in a dark room for the day with endless coffee and absolutely no speaking allowed is seen as more of a blessed relief than the chore it can sometimes be.

Justine_Armour-pic-thumb-400x286-229570.jpgEach week Bestads picks the very best advertising in the world, in every medium - which is reviewed by a top creative director or team to select their own personal favourites.

This week's guest judge is Justine Armour, group creative director, 72andSunny, New York.

BEST TV
Best for me is the Speed Blinds You idea. I wasn't expecting to rate this one because it's kind of ugly, but then you realize that visual is key to the message. Slow down campaigns have been done a million ways, so well done on finding a new and interesting way to make me think about this. Strong execution and editing on this one, too. READ MORE...

Advertising_Week_Europe_London_2nd_Edition.jpegAdvertising Week, the premiere event for marketing, brand, advertising, and technology professionals, today confirms its global expansion to Sydney.

The news was confirmed at the fifth anniversary edition of Advertising Week Europe, which is taking place this week in London.
 
Advertising Week will host attendees in some of Sydney's most iconic venues for a week of inspiring thought-leadership programming, evening and special events that celebrate the industry and its people.
FreshUp_ChadvsLarry_PRImage1 (2).jpgNext Tuesday evening, two mates from the 'Naki' will take their ongoing rivalry to epic proportions. In a live and televised Fresh-up event via Colenso BBDO, the lads will battle it out in three events over 45 minutes as they attempt to beat their mate and smash their thirst.

Fresh-up went looking for contenders back in November. They found Chad and Larry, mates since high-school, and rivals for just as long.

Says Craig Irwin, marketing director, Frucor: "We had a lot of great entries but Chad and Larry stood out. Two great mates, two fierce rivals, a tradie versus a doctor, who were already in the habit of videoing their rivalry, I don't think we could have hoped for a more perfect combination."

The three events on the night include a Mechanical Bull Ride, Couch Pull Strongman and a Hot Curry Challenge. Two of the events are grudge re-matches. The Hot Curry is a particular four year old sore point. Video footage from the original shows Larry thinking he'd won the eating event until Chad suddenly licked his takeaway container to claim the victory.

konrad-feldman (1).jpgMachine learning is revolutionising advertising. However, businesses need to make sure that machine based optimisation drives growth, and not efficiency at the expense of diminishing revenue.
 
This was the view of Konrad Feldman (left), global CEO of Quantcast, on the future of machine learning and its effect on advertising at an exclusive lunch for PHD clients in Auckland on Monday.
 
Feldman said machines are goal oriented and want to be rewarded.  So left unchecked, they will put performance ahead of profit.

treehouse (1).jpgPedigree and Colenso BBDO have taken a hilariously blunt approach to adoption by creating a campaign that pairs abandoned dogs with abandoned parents.

The Pedigree Child Replacement Programme aims to connect adoption dogs with parents who find themselves alone after their kids move out.

The integrated campaign drives parents to replacethem.co.nz where they can find the perfect canine substitute for their child, cheekily suggesting, 'When your kids move out, move on'. Parents who adopt can even send in their child's old possessions and Pedigree will turn them into new possessions for their dog.

"The last word in show business is business" -  Mae West.

Kim Kardashian is worth 65 million dollars. She also gets payed 10 000 dollars per tweet from various brands around the world to say something nice in less than 140 characters about their brands. And there are many that laugh at her. They say she has no talent. I would agree. But she is worth 65 million dollars. Think about that. Ask yourself why.

Perhaps you remain unimpressed. Well let me tell you what Kim Kardashian's arse can do.

Auckland Council - Biosecurity via Ogilvy & Mather New Zealand, developed unique software that transposed the tears of one dying kauri into musical notation and using the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra people could hear the tree's pain.

Royer's session is tantalisingly titled: 'The Party You Can't Go To and the Universe in Your Head'.

Best: Magistral Dishwasher: Amateur from Grey Argentina. Cool tagline: "Go Ahead Amateurs". Such a nice use of music to push the idea further. Simple, creative and nicely well done.

Runner up: AA: Designated Drivers from adam&eveDDB London. Fresh way to put two such well used themes in advertising "don't drink and drive" and "don't text and drive" together. Nice twist at the end. Cool. READ MORE...

LeviSlavin (1).jpgAussie expat Levi Slavin, who has spent the last two years as a EVP, group creative director at BBDO New York, is set to take the chief creative officer role at Colenso BBDO, Auckland, reporting to creative chairman Nick Worthington.

While not confirmed officially by anyone senior at Colenso BBDO, the appointment is no doubt designed to pave the way for the eventual retirement of the legendary Worthington, who joined Colenso BBDO nearly ten years ago, in September 2007.

Slavin would not confirm the appointment when contacted. Slavin told CB: "We still have some more work to do before we can confirm the details that have been published: so titles and timings are all speculation at this point. But I do know three things for sure: 1) David Lubars has been incredibly supportive of my family and career during my years at BBDO. And, as Global CCO, a transfer within the BBDO network will ultimately be his call. 2) Nick Worthington isn't going anywhere. If he was, the role the network is discussing for me would be less appealing. 3) Given our tumultuous new world, I can't imagine a single Aussie or Kiwi working in the states who hasn't considered returning home with their families. So, if I'm lucky enough to be selected to help run the best agency on earth, in the best place on earth, I'll jump at the chance."
Ben and John (1).jpgInnovative global network Havas has acquired leading Auckland advertising agency, Mr Smith, in a deal that sees the two Mr Smith founding partners John O'Leary and Ben Handy heading the NZ operation, which has rebranded to Havas New Zealand with immediate effect.
