The data privacy issue: The Royals create AdNews July 2018 front cover

The July issue is here and features all the latest industry goings on, big features, people profiles, deep-dives on creative, social photos and more.

This month's edition is the third to feature a cover created by one of Australia’s leading creative agencies.

We hand-pick each agency and the cover of the year will be voted for by readers at the end of 2018.

For this cover, The Royals – our AdNews Independent Agency of the Year 2017 - took a thought–provoking and dark approach to the brief at hand; with a nod to edition's investigative feature which looks at data privacy in the wake of General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

The poignant creative, with faceless organisations and a young innocent girl clutching the most personal item of all (her diary), is striking, clever and emotive and no doubt a strong contender for the cover of the year.

Once again AdNews is thrilled and grateful for the level of effort and creative brilliance. See editor's letter on current edition here
