Photo gallery: Industry Christmas parties in full swing

By Lindsay Bennett | 16 December 2015

It's the silly season and the industry Christmas parties are upon us. A record number of shindigs went down last Thursday (we know, we tried to get to them all), and as we know, adland can party.

This is the time of year where we get to forget about work, put on our party hats and take lots of selfies.

From The Monkeys' office party to Whybin's fairytale-themed bash at Cell Block Theatre, to APN's annual ham party and Commercial Radio Australia's shindig in Martin Place Bar, there were plently of parties, which means plenty of photos. (Gallery below).

AdRoll had its Christmas celebration at The Island, which saw many shirtless men in Christmasfied budgy smugglers - and some in suits too.

AdRoll ANZ managing director, Ben Sharp, best known as Sharpie, said: "All I can say is 2015 has been bloody awesome. I'm stoked to have celebrated with 300 of AdRoll Sydney's nearest and dearest, including a few lads in budgy smugglers, on The Island. I hope everyone enjoys the end of year break and I'm pumped to see what's going to be happening in 2016."

And if AdRoll didn't have enough half-naked men for you, Atomic 212 had more and this time in masks. The Adam and Eve-inspired Christmas party took place at Dunbar House in Watson's Bay and had ladies decked out in all white and a real life snake. Why not?

Hey, we work hard during the year. We deserve to unwind and undress, apparently. Check out the gallery below, and if we missed you out then email your snaps to
