Clemenger BBDO, Melbourne Takes Home Grand Prix for TAC 'Meet Graham' at The 2017 AC&E Awards
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 (left) 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.

Taking the AC&E Awards to the next level, the Audit Media Association joined with the AC&E Awards Audit Committee, reviewingL3301_20171026ADMA.jpg 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.

Qantas chief marketing officer Stephanie Tully (right) was named ADMA Marketer of the Year. MercerBell founding partner Nick Mercer (right) was inducted into the ADMA Hall of Fame.

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 Gala Dinner attracted over 500 advertisers and marketers to Big Top, Luna Park. Australian stand-up comedian and radio and television presenter Tom Gleeson took on MC duties. ADMA acknowledged its sponsors for their generous support including oOH!Media, The Sydney Morning Herald, Publicis Cubed, Westpac, Acquia, Smart Video, Siteimprove, Slidemaster and SSI as well as event partners Clemenger BBDO Melbourne, the Audited Media Association of Australia, DRV Creative, and Wink Models.
 
Says Jodie Sangster, CEO, ADMA: "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."
