SA Ambulance Service (SA Health): Hands Off Our Ambos
Despite a sharp rise in violence against South Australian Ambulance Officers (colloquially known as 'Ambos'), research revealed that the general public didn't consider it to be a real issue. People simply could not believe that anyone would assault an ambulance officer who was actively trying to save a life. To increase awareness and reduce the incidents of violent attacks on Paramedics by 2%. Showpony's challenge was to raise public awareness by making the unbelievable, believable. To achieve this Showpony didn't make an ad, the agency created an 'incident', one that would demonstrate the harsh realities of what Ambos contend with. This incident was then captured as a user-generated content piece. On an iPhone4, in a single take. No edits, no treatments.
Says Mark Watkin, managing director, BWM Dentsu Melbourne: "We are immensely proud of the transformative brand work we have delivered in partnership with Simplot, but after eight years of a productive relationship, we have decided to not participate in the review."

Harsent's GBH is a natural progression from his previous work 'The Beautiful Game', a series that captured the subtle physical and emotional power of football stadia over their surrounding environments. In GBH, Harsent moves on from physical to cultural relics of football, exploring a subset of football culture that has remained a shocking fascination for many fans decades later.
Says White: "I'm a big believer in independence. There's a wonderful agility and humility that comes with it. You respond to your clients' challenges in a way that is truly centered upon the needs of the business and the people running it - rather than in a way that is governed by a network or dictated by their rigid frameworks."

Sky TV, The History Channel: Unforgotten Soldiers
The Glue Society, Revolver/Will O'Rourke, DDB NZ
The Unforgotten Soldiers was a tableau vivant installation that brought an old black and white World War One picture to life on the streets of Auckland. The campaign turned a part of Lorne Street into a real life WWI trench, complete with authentic surround sound to take you back to 1915. The 8-hour performance brought to life a typical day in the trench and was all based on real NZ soldiers and their real stories. Everything looked just as it was 100 years ago, authentic army uniforms, weapons, food rations, were carefully crafted to recreate the effect of looking at an old 'black and white' picture, but in real life. Directed by The Glue Society's Pete Baker.

It was a Tuesday morning and as I walked into the creative department three or four creatives were huddled around a Mac. You know straight away if you have worked in a creative department that there are only two reasons for this. They have found something very funny or they have seen a piece of work they really like.
I walked over. They were watching believe it or not a television commercial. It was Nike's new piece of work from Wieden and Kennedy where they celebrate a woman that finishes last in a Marathon. It is beautifully shot. The music is great and the voiceover makes the ad. It is a simple idea well executed. It is also 60 seconds long. You could tell it was a great piece of communication by one simple fact. The creatives were jealous.
The research is designed as an experiment that requires agency art directors and copywriters, with at least two years experience, to respond to a dummy brief. The brief is essentially the same, but there will be differences in variables like insight, ideation technique and media.
