SIREN AWARDS: GREY MELBOURNE SWEEPS ROUND 2
Ben Keenan and Connor Beaver from Grey Worldwide, Melbourne have won the overall and campaign category of Round 2 of the 2008 Siren Awards.
The series of ads target cigarette butt litter by prank calling unsuspecting 'tossers' for Sustainability Victoria.
This unique approach saw Grey, Melbourne become the first winners to take a clean sweep of a Siren Round with one of their campaign winning ads: 'Bin Your Butts - Male', winning the single category for Round 2.
This round's Craft Category Winner went to 'Black Widow Trackers' written by Jo Campbell and produced by Gregg Sinclair from ARN, Sydney.
The Craft category recognises the important role of sound engineers in creating good ads for radio, and encourages them to push the boundaries of sound.
Campbell and Sinclair have won the right to judge the Craft category for Round 3.
