David Fare from major sponsor Media Tonic presented the award to Keeley at Perth City Farm last Thursday. Unfortunately, Newton had had a table tennis accident the same day resulting in a badly injured finger needing hospital attention and couldn't attend.

Over 120 people turned out for the presentation - the third annual Diamond Skull Awards, which honour the individuals who create the most inspiring creative communications in WA.

Unlike traditional craft categories in award shows, the Diamond Skulls judges across a portfolio of work created during 2016 rather than just one piece.

This year's Diamond Skulls were judged by 20 creative leaders across four continents and headed by Patron of this year's Diamond Skulls, Matt Eastwood, Global Chief Creative Officer J. Walter Thompson.

Besides Timora's 'ultimate' Diamond Skull, the category winners were:
Art Director of the Year
Nathan Teoh (The Brand Agency)

Copywriter of the Year
Timora - Tim Newton & Wilora Keeley (J Walter Thompson)

Designer of the Year
