2014 Advertising & Marketing Award winners

Newspaper media’s creative, sales and marketing teams from across Australia, New Zealand, the South Pacific and South-East Asia were recognised at the 2014 Advertising & Marketing awards event, held in Sydney tonight.

The revitalised program, combining the highly successful Ad awards with the Marketing categories of the Newspaper of the Year awards, attracted a record 450 entries from Australia, New Zealand, the South Pacific and South-East Asia.

The Advertising awards categories recognised publishers’ in-house work, while both agency and in-house executions were eligible for the Marketing categories.

“It was pleasing to see such a high number of entries and the excellent calibre of submissions made it very tough for our panel of judges. I would like to congratulate all the award winners as we seek to recognise and celebrate outstanding talent and the advertising and marketing activities of the news publishing industry,” The Newspaper Works CEO Mark Hollands said.

The Newspaper of the Year awards will be announced tomorrow night at a gala event at Sydney’s Ivy.
