StJohns_BreakTheBarrier_BLOG.jpg845 people from the Western Australian Advertising and Media industries gathered under a huge big top circus tent last night for the gala 2015 Oasis Ball and Campaign Brief Perth Awards.

The big Campaign Brief Agency of the Year award went to The Brand Agency, who narrowly edged out Marketforce.

St John Ambulance picked up the prestigious client gong – the Campaign Brief Advertiser of the Year award. In addition to international and national accolades, their commercial “Break the Barrier” was a winner in the Television Single category. A print campaign also won Best of Year in Print Campaign.

The Campaign Brief Advertising Person of the Year was awarded to Meerkats’ managing director Gavin Bain (pictured below) for both his personal success over the past 12 months and his contribution to the industry and to mentoring the Perth Advertising and Design Club.

Media Agency of the Year – Carat.

Carat very narrowly edged out Initiative in this two-horse race. Both documents were equally impressive from a business performance. 2014 was a year of strong growth for Carat and it is fitting that as managing director Alan Matthews reaches the twilight of his distinguished career, and with the retirement of Tom Martin, that they win the Media Agency of the Year.

Media Organisation of the Year – Southern Cross Austereo.

A dominant performance in our poll of Perth’s media planners and buyers.

Small to Medium Enterprise (SME) of the Year – Bell Booth Advertising & Marketing. A great year for Bell Booth on several levels saw them edge out Adzoo in a tight decision.
