Well done Emma. You're an inspiration. I went along to a talk at youngbloods and you were amazing.

It's only going to be onwards and upwards for you!

Well done to all the Aussies, especially Paula Keamy, who's one of our "unsung" creative talents.

About bloody time. It's 2007 and this is the first female? Awesome Emma! Proud of you. But an effing disgrace to all you humans of a certain gender holding back half the population!

That half the population arguement 'might' hold some credit if half the CD's were female. Heck, name a couple of agencies where half the creative teams are female. This isn't a female bash, in fact, I applaud the decision. Just don't take this as an 'bout fucking time equal opportunity' opportunity.
