Scott Maddox and Fraser Grant from Colenso BBDO, Auckland have won the 2006 Fairfax Young Creative of the Year Competition.
The winning team will attend the Cannes Lions 53rd International Advertising Festival in France in June, courtesy of Fairfax, where they will have the opportunity to showcase their talent against competing young creative teams from 30 countries, for the sought after title, Young Creative Team of the Year.
Joan Withers, Chief Executive Officer of Fairfax, says “The competition drew a fantastic response of 43 team entries and demonstrates the extraordinary creative talent that we have available to us in New Zealand.
“Fairfax has now proudly sponsored Young Creatives at Cannes for two years and is committed to the creative industry in New Zealand. It will be an honour for the winning New Zealand team to be at this internationally recognised event and compete against young creatives from 30 different countries.”
The judges of the competition were Michael Prentice, Strategic Director at MTC, who is also a member of the Media Jury for Cannes Lions 2006, and Matty Burton, Creative Group Head at Saatchi & Saatchi, who is on the Direct Jury at Cannes this year and Sandra King, Group Sales and Marketing Manager of Fairfax.
Anthea Goodrick and Kimberley Davidson from Clemenger BBDO in Wellington; and Rosita Rawnsley-Mason and Stacey Lee, from Saatchi & Saatchi in Auckland were announced as the runners up.
