2017 ADMA AC&E Awards Winners announced



Sydney, 27 October 2017 – Last night was a particularly rewarding night for Melbourne-based agencies once again at the ADMA Australian Creativity and Effectiveness (AC&E) Awards, held last night at Big Top, Luna Park, Sydney.

 

Clemenger BBDO Melbourne received the most awards handed out during the evening to one agency, taking home 10 awards plus three Pinnacles including the Data-Driven Award, The Courageous Client Award and the Grand Prix.

 

For 2017, new Pinnacle categories were introduced including Social Impact and Data-Driven to ensure the Awards are aligned with industry expectations. 


Taking the AC&E Awards to the next level, the Audit Media Association joined with the AC&E Awards Audit Committee, reviewing all entries to ensure that only agencies that could prove their results got through to the final round, making the AC&E Awards the most rigorous in the country. 

 

‘Meet Graham’ produced by Clemenger BBDO was the most awarded campaign on the night including for Courageous Client with ‘Meet Graham’ for the Transport Accident Commission (VIC), ‘Graham’ is part interactive sculpture, part educational tool and a catalyst for conversation. ‘Graham’ shows how humans would need to change or evolve in order to survive impact forces of 30km/hr. 

 

‘Snickers Hungerithm’ also by Clemenger BBDO for Mars Chocolate Australia was also a huge win with four awards plus one Pinnacle Award in Data-Driven.

 

Notable in the 2017 Awards was the quality of the awards with game-changing ideas and data baked in at all stages of the campaigns. The judges noted the entries were phenomenal and a delight to judge.

 

In all, the gala evening delivered  42 winning trophies and 39 highly commended trophies during the evening.

 

“The AC&E Awards matter enormously to clients and agencies today because they’re the only awards in Australia that recognise exceptional creativity and solid business results in equal proportion, not as separate specialisations. Together they have the power to transform a business demonstrated by the fantastic work we’ve seen tonight.  I congratulate all the winners, those who received highly commended trophies and the finalists, all of whom should be very proud of their work” said Jodie Sangster, ADMA CEO.
