THIRTY YEARS OF GREAT ADVERTISING

The AdNews Agency of the Year Awards, Australia's first and foremost advertising and marketing showcase of excellence, turns 30 in 2016. We've been celebrating great Australian work and the agencies that produce it for three decades and this year is going to be particularly fabulous.

The 2016 AdNews Agency of the Year winners were wildly varied with the ideas across the board being nothing short of brilliant - a flowing testament to the health of this industry despite the ever more challenging world it operates in.

Huge congratulations to all 2016 AdNews Agency of the Year winners, and to Clemenger BBDO Melbourne, who took out the night and were named the AdNews Agency of the Year. For a full list of winners, click here.

ADVERTISING HALL OF FAME

Warren Brown 


Warren Brown, the co-founder of BMF, was inducted into the AdNews Advertising Hall in 2017. He joins previous recipients including the contrarian founder of Cummins&Partners, Sean Cummins, WhybinTBWA founder Scott Whybin, Clemenger BBDO executive chairman Robert Morgan and Mitchell and Partners founder Harold Mitchell, among others.

Brown, is one of the most awarded creatives in Australia, with 19 Cannes Lions and seven D&AD Silvers. He’s most famous for his work for Tooheys, particularly ‘Tongue’s Quest’ in 2003, which redefined beer advertising in Australia; government anti-smoking campaigns which have run in 50 countries; and work for Meat & Livestock Australia, including the now iconic Sam Kekovich unAustralian spot. For Brown it was the 1993 ‘I’d like to see that’ ad for the AFL out of The Campaign Palace that was a turning point for his career. It’s just been resurrected with an homage to mark the start of the first Women’s AFL league, and the idea still resonates 14 years later.
