UPDATED: The official list of Australian 'In Book' entries accepted into D&AD this year has just been released, and with 16 pieces of work accepted, a pretty good result, placing Australia 8th in the world.

Congratulations to all those who managed to get a real ad into D&AD this year.

I think the list represents that sad Aussie tradition of falling back on tiny one offs.

Interesting that neither "TIger" or "Budgies" made the final "IN BOOK" list. So, who leaked that bit of bogus gossip in the first place? Probably the same old sources... Which makes we wonder: Aren't we tired of being banged over the head by an endless PR machine tellign us time & time again what we should buy into? Its like they are duping us. Like we are regular consumers that just love to eat up what is fed to us . Pathetic. Do yoursefl a favor. Step out of the noise and see that much of the hyped-up work is just mediocre & unworhty or recognition. Have an opinin & go with your Gut.. AND DON'T BELIEVE THE HYPE!

Hi Michael,

A bit late I know, but we have learned that two commercials directed by Garth Davis are also in the D&AD book.

One is for Boots ‘Summer Rush’, which we did with Mother, London.
And the other is for Xbox ‘Cops and Robbers’ with McCann-Erickson Worldwide, San Francisco.

It’s a pretty good result, so I thought you might like to know!
