Creative winners at the Campaign Brief Awards

Comments (7)
ETR_8.jpgThe Campaign Brief creative awards threw up the usual mixed bag on Friday night, with some predictable winners and a couple of surprises.

In the former was ORS 'Enjoy The Ride' winning Best of Year for Television. It was everyone's favourite work of 2011 and dominated the PADCs in October. ETR was one of 303Lowe's two winners in the creative categories, with ECU 'The ME Project' being the other in Online.

Marketforce won both Radio categories with its 'Interrupted' campaign for the ORS but disappointingly, its outstanding 'Horsepower' commercial didn't even make a finalist in the Television Advertisement category.

Meerkats surprised with both finalists in TV Campaign, with Lotterywest 'Super Sleuth' getting the nod ahead of HBF 'Moments'.

Cooch won the Out of Home award for the second year in a row, with the bonus that this time the agency was there to accept it.

Ad Impact's PADC West Fellowship-winning Pool Fence won Best of Year Press Advertisement.

Why didn't 'Horsepower' TVC make it as a finalist? It was outstanding!

Thanks Oasis Committee and CB for a great night.

Why wouldn't horsepower make it as a finalist?! There seems little disagreement in the town that horsepower is an exceptional piece of work.

Brilliantb ad, no doubt about it.
The obvious conclusion, is obvious.

I'd like a pony said:

Horsepower is not that good. It didn't deserve a finalist listing.

First thought said:

'Y'know a train has a lot of horsepower......that's it , horsepower!"

I suspect that horsepower will pick up at AWARD in direction and craft categories but as an idea, it is first thought. Beautifully crafted first thought though.
