Aldi’s marketing director has taken out the Marketer of the Year Award at this year’s ADMA Awards, while a campaign about no-frills air travel and a risqué piece on testicular cancer dominated other categories.

Aldi marketing director, Sam Viney was awarded ADMA Marketer of the Year at the second annual AC&E Awards, one of 34 winners at this year’s event at The Star. Young Marketer of the Year was awarded to McDonalds senior brand manager, Tim Kenward, while the first-ever ADMA Creative of the Year went to McCann Melbourne’s executive creative director, Pat Baron. Young Creative of the Year went Ogilvy Melbourne duo, Alex Little (copywriter) and Karsten Jurkschat (art director).

ADMA also recognised two industry notables and contributors, awarding the Jon Clark Award for Outstanding Contribution to former chair of IAPA and Deloitte director of decision science and analytics, Doug Campbell, and the Hall of Fame to Quantium’s Tony Davis.

Across the wider campaign, content, data, technology and creativity categories, there were two standout winners on the night. M&C Saatchi and Bang PR scored five awards for their soft porn health campaign for the Blue Ball Foundation, entitled ‘Play with yourself’, designed to encourage men to check for testicular cancer: The David Ogilvy Couragous Client Award; Branded Content; Digital and Social Advertising; Media; and Not-for-Profit Campaign.

McCann Melbourne’s ‘Infrequent Flyers Club’ for Tigerair also secured four awards on the night, including Customer Experience, Copywriting, Customer Retention/Loyalty Campaign and Integrated Campaign.

Google’s ‘Ask the Google App’ out-of-home campaign, produced by The Hallway, also took home three gongs: Out-Of-Home, The Innovation Award, and the top Grand Prix Award.

ADMA CEO, Jodie Sangster, said the AC&E Awards are about recognising the “two ends of continuum” – creativity and effectiveness.

“The AC&E Awards matter to clients and agencies because they’re the only awards in Australia that recognise exceptional creativity and solid business results in equal proportion, not as separate specialisations,” she said. “Together they have the power to transform a business as the winners tonight have demonstrated. I congratulate all the winners, those who received highly commended trophies, and finalists.”

ADMA said judges chose not to name winners for three categories this year: Ambient/Experiential, Email Marketing, and Print: Adverts, Posters, Inserts, Sales Materials and Collateral.

The second annual AC&E Awards were attended by more than 600 representatives from the advertising, marketing and technology community and held at The Star in Sydney.

Why defining brand strategy is vital to capitalising on quick wins

Big brands were once protected from small brands by high barriers to entry. Big brands had the resources to employ big agencies, to crack big ideas and to invest in big campaigns. They had the luxury of time to debate strategies and work on long-term innovation pipelines. Retailers used to partner with big brands.
