Isn't it interesting that the UN radio spot has picked up a bronze at Cannes and now a bronze at Clio but lost out to the Bic Pen ad at the Siren Awards. And from what i hear didn't pick up anything at AWARD last year.
Once again proving that local awards are a joke.

8.37pm, the anomaly you're talking about is not really that strange. Award shows all have different judging panels and that's why they produce varying results. Just because one piece of work was awarded in one place, doesn't mean it has to win everywhere. It's very subjective. And this can be a good thing. If all shows awarded the same work, they'd make themselves redundant.

Local awards aren't a joke.

It's just that there is a slightly different criteria for winning international awards.
How many judges from international award juries look at an ad from the intended target market's point of few? Bugger all, that's how many.

The target audience for ads entered into international award shows is generally people aged between 30 and 50, they're usually male, and they happen to work as Creative Directors at ad agencies.

The Bic campaign hasn't been entered into too many shows other than MADC and Sirens, where it's kicked ass.

This is for 2 reasons:
1. it's fairly new
2. smart don't enter everything under sun into every catagory at every award show in the vain hope that by shear weight of numbers they'll eventually collect some metal... they can't afford too.
