EXPECTATIONS HIGH FOR KODAK GONGS AND INDUSTRY PARTY FRIDAY 8th SEPTEMBER 2006, AT THE CAPITOL THEATRE, SYDNEY
The entire advertising and TVC production industry is gearing up for the 2nd annual Kodak Gongs 2006 AWARDS PRESENTATION & PARTY, which will be held Friday 8th September at the Capitol Theatre, 13 Campbell Street, Sydney from 7pm.
The 2006 Presentation and Industry Party is an annual not-for-profit awards event set up to recognise and reward the Asia Pacific Region’s most talented creative people and companies involved in the ideas and the craft of commercial moving images. The Presentation will reveal the Best of the Best winners, culminating in the 2006 Best of Show.
The format of this mega black tie night will be a swift presentation to be held in the grand Capitol Theatre, to be followed by “The Party of the Year”, a celebration of all winners and finalists alike. The party will extend on into the night at the official after party to be held at the Mandarin Club from 12am.
The Kodak Gongs has been developed after an extensive review of every local and overseas awards event. As a result it has a number of unique features. For the first time media use is not the key criteria. Only in The Kodak Gongs will a piece of work developed for viral, web, television, cinema or any other emerging delivery platform be judged on the same basis. The Kodak Gongs have been designed to recognise the current and future competitive basis of our industry.
This is unapologetically a celebration of excellence in ideas and craft,
The world-class panel of 83 regional and international judges included industry notables such as Warren Brown, BMF Australia, Prasoon Joshi, McCann Erickson India, Rob Belgiovane, BWM Australia, Thirasak Tanapatankul, Creative Juice/G1 Thailand, Al Mosley, Weiden + Kennedy, The Netherlands and John Merrifield, TBWA Tokyo.
