Leos Melbourne wins APMA Star Grand Prix

By AdNews | 7 August 2015

Leo Burnett Melbourne's #MyFamilyCan campaign for SPC Ardmona has taken home the grand prix at the 2015 APMA Star Awards last night at Sydney's Pavillion.

The campaign also picked up four gold gongs at the awards while the agency took home two additional gold medals for its work with Honda: the 'Be Our Best Critic' and 'Magic Mobile Drive-In' campaigns. The haul meant that the agency took home the most gold awards of the evening.

The APMA Star awards recognise the most outstanding promotional and experiential marketing work across Australia and New Zealand. 2015 marked the tenth year of the awards.

APMA Chairman David Lo said: "This is the tenth anniversary for the APMA Star Awards and it’s great to see how they have developed over time to attract entries from a broad range of agencies and specialisms.

“The standard this year has been outstanding. It is important that we recognise these achievements to continue raising the bar for excellence in our industry. Thanks to all of this year’s 35 judges and Star Awards sponsors.”

Other big winners included Traffik which picked up three gold awards for Samsung Australia's Slideliner campaign, April5 Agency which took home two golds for Cunard's Queen Elizabeth tribute to 100 Years of ANZAC campaign and Momentum Worldwide won two for Reckitt Benckiser's 30 Nights of Nookie campaign and Heineken Lion's Heineken Chauffeur.
