YELLOW FEVER AS AUSSIES BASK IN D&AD GLORY
It was a big night for Australia with a record four Yellow Pencils (out of a record seven Nominations) at the D&AD Global Awards last week in London. Gary Freedman from The Glue Society was there to collect two Yellow Pencils for Virgin Mobile, as was Richard Muntz, representing George Patts Y&R Melbourne, who picked up the Yellow Pencil for the VB 'Boony' campaign, and Warren Brown from BMF Sydney who picked up a Yellow Pencil for the Tooheys 'Stolen Glasses' campaign. Andy Blood, CD of TBWA\ Whybin, Auckland, was also there to collect a Yellow Pencil for Adidas 'Be the Ball'
This was the first year D&AD's judging system has opened up to the rest of the world in its 43 year old history, thanks to pressure from the top Aussie and Kiwi creative directors last year.
Here are a few pics (mainly of the Aussies and expats) from the night.
