Finalists Announced |  2021 Axis Awards

Posted 18 February 2021.

​After the recent COVID-19 lockdown, all the IRL* judging plans had to quickly evolve into online judging plans. So, after several days of online judging and five inspiring IRL discussion sessions, we’re proud to announce the finalists for Axis-21 IRL*. Read the accompanying list to see who might be winning IRL*. A massive thanks to our fantastic Category Judges for all the mahi to date. Just under 600 entries across 99 categories have been judged so far with three more rounds of judging to go.

Maria Devereux, Convener of Judges and Executive Creative Director at Colenso BBDO said “As you’d expect of our brilliant little country, we adapted and worked harder than ever in 2020 to create exceptional work in the face of adversity. The number of finalists and the standard of work this year is a tribute to what we’re all capable of as an industry.”

So, a round of applause please, let’s congratulate our finalists for Axis-21 IRL*. We look forward to finding out who the winners are at the Gala Dinner next month on March 18th at Shed 10.

Tickets are on sale now.
