The Australian Grand Prix Corporation (AGPC) has appointed The Monkeys, part of Accenture Interactive, as lead creative agency.

The Monkeys will work with AGPC on a multi-year contract.

AGPC general manager of marketing Arthur Gillion says the agency demonstrated a "thorough" understanding of the brand's events and fans.

“The Monkeys have proven they can work with us to develop powerful brand insights and creative executions that command attention from new and existing audiences," Gillion says.

"We very much look forward to bringing these ideas to life in the years ahead.”

The first creative work to be rolled out will be a campaign for the 2021 Formula 1 Australian Grand Prix event to be held in Albert Park, Melbourne, in March 2021.

“Both the Formula 1 Australian Grand Prix and the MotoGP are iconic major events in Australia, and we couldn’t be more thrilled to be working with the AGPC," The Monkeys CEO Paul McMillan says.

“We look forward to developing effective, creative work that will continue to excite new and existing fans from all over the world.”

AGPC is the latest win for The Monkeys, joining other new clients over the last year including Tourism WADrinkWise and Boats Camping and Fishing (BCF).
