Colenso BBDO are BOTAB 2019 Champions!

Posted 18 October 2019.

Colenso BBDO have won the title of Bohemian Rocketman!

​Last night eight agency bands took to the Galatos stage for the 12th annual Battle of the Ad Bands in a brilliant display of sequins, feathers and a lot of sass.

The talent was out of this world but Colenso BBDO took out the competition with their band Kill Enzo, proving that They Are the Champions, My Friends!

For their efforts, Colenso have taken home:

· A production run of their own designed ice cream flavour from Much MooreIce-Cream

· A $500 Lunch at Prego


Fortis Travel’s giant $1,000 travel cheque went to Jessica Woodward from 99. 99 also took home an exclusive private class for 42 people at Studio Box for managing to round up the most groupies.
