The top award of Grand AXIS at the 2009 CAANZ AXIS awards was presented to Colenso BBDO for their work on Read a Book at Work for client New Zealand Book Council.

The CAANZ AXIS Awards honor the creative talents of the industry and are a celebration of the year’s most exciting and original ideas.

CAANZ President David Walden said Axis remains the pinnacle of the New Zealand industry in terms of creativity, and winning an award is highly valued by agencies and clients alike.

“The industry’s vision is for insight and creativity to be commonly accepted by clients as must-haves in their products & services.”

Creative Business of the Year was awarded to the New Zealand Transport Agency.

“CAANZ, through vehicles like the Axis awards, continues to play a key role in bringing to life the maxim that creative businesses are more successful businesses,” said Mr Walden

Liquidstudios won this year’s Production Company of the Year and the Industry Excellence Award was awarded to Kim Thorp, of Assignment.

The Emerging Talent award, which acknowledges those who have recently entered the industry, was presented to Rory McKechnie from DraftFCB New Zealand, whose early work has already begun to gain attention in the industry.

This year’s judging panel, made up of 43 local creatives and four international judges – Matt Doman & Ian Heartfield, Creative Directors from Beattie McGuinness Bungay London, Steve Ayson, Director from The Sweet Shop Los Angeles and Jureeporn Thaidumrong, Founder & Executive Creative Director from JEH Thailand – were all highly impressed with the quality of work submitted.
