David Nobay, ECD of Saatchi & Saatchi Australia, has been selected to chair the Radio jury for next year's D&AD Awards, the first time an Australian has been given one of the key chairman's roles. The pommie award organisation believes Australia is one of the world's centres of excellence (Australia was ranked fourth at both Cannes and D&AD this year) and that may be the reason for the honour. Nobby is certainly a favourite with the D&AD gang as he was on the Print jury last year. As a result of the huge success this year, Australia and New Zealand will be getting even more juror spots at D&AD next year, a list being compiled right now.

A thoroughly deserved honour from one of the most principled and hard-working people in the business.

I can't think of anyone who deserves the honour more.

P.S. We still OK for a review next Tuesday, Nobby?

Bet Saatchis are dusting down the old, barely used MS Word radio templates as we speak.

You mean the one they used to write the ad that won at Cannes last year, 7:18?

Right on the money, Luke.

And the photo doesn't do him justice.

Can I have my job back now?

9.33 – What radio ad? Nothing from Australia got up (to my knowledge)

9:33. The term 'barely used' does imply usage, just not very much.

Luke C, why don't you just blow Nobby (again) and get it over with? You suck hole.

Thanks for your thought, bravely anonymous 12:41PM. Alas, the queue for blowing Nobby is getting ever longer, and I doubt I'd get in before D&AD judging starts.
