Axis 2020 Finalists Announced

Announcing the 2020 Axis Awards Finalists

With the preliminary round of judging completed at the end of last week, the Comms Council have today released the finalists who will all compete to put a new Axis trophy in the cabinet.

Around 474 entries make up the 2020 finalists from the 95 categories that have so far been judged. This year we are seeing great work coming from all areas of the industry, with the more traditional categories of direct, print, design and outdoor having a strong showing this year.

“The amount of diverse work that has made it through to finalist should mean that there will be many celebrating at the Axis Awards Dinner this year” Paul Head, Comms Council CEO commented. “Our industry is always evolving and every year we face different challenges around categories and face new considerations at the judging round. This year was no different and the entire judging panel have done a great job with the huge number of entries. We congratulate everyone who made it on to this year’s finalist list and look forward to celebrating the ideas from the past year that will hopefully be remembered for another 40.”

Let’s find out what’s worth “sellebrating” at the 40th Axis Awards on March 12 at SkyCity Convention Centre. See you there.
