Inspiring presentations wow Sydney crowd at Work Behind the Work, as Melbourne prepares for tonight’s event

Last night AWARD presented its Work Behind the Work event to a sell-out crowd in Sydney.

AWARD Work behind the WorkHosted by sponsor Facebook, the event brought the industry an exclusive behind-the-scenes look into some of Australia’s finest creative campaigns and the teams involved in bringing them to life.

The campaigns, which were all highly awarded at the recent 40th AWARD Awards, were:

  • AutoAds
    presented by Cameron Bell and Sam Dickson, Creative Directors at CHE Proximity
  • Stop Your Boobs Playing Their Own Game
    presented by Charlotte Marshall (Strategic Planner), Shannon Duhig (Senior Content Director), Chloe Banicevic (Senior Art Director) & Barbara Humphries (Creative Director) at The Monkeys
  • Project Revoice
    presented by Asheen Naidu (Executive Creative Director), BWM Dentsu & Emad Tahtouh (Co-Founder & Managing Director) at Nakatomi.

AWARD Committee Member Ant Melder welcomed guests to the event. Speaking to The Communications Council, he said: “There’s an old maxim about the mundane nature of legislation: ‘Laws are like sausages. It’s better not to see them being made.’ ” This brilliant session proved that when it comes to great ideas, the opposite is true.

“It was an absolute pleasure to spend time really getting under the skin of some of the region’s very best work from the last year. The presentations were smart, thorough and entertaining. And the packed audience clearly took great inspiration from seeing at close quarters the epic (and often pretty bumpy!) journeys that led to greatness,” he added.

AWARD would like to thank all of the speakers for their inspiring presentations and also our moderator for the night Creative Agency Partner at Facebook, Liz Harper. Thanks also to our sponsor Facebook for hosting the event.

Melbourne, get ready. You’re next!
