The finalists for the highly anticipated 43rd Annual AXIS Awards have just been announced, and it's shaping up to be a night to remember!
The AXIS Awards are a celebration of the most creative and innovative advertising in Aotearoa, and this year's theme is all about recognising the most iconic kiwi advertising campaigns of the past, as well as those from the past 12 months that are worthy of joining them.
The convenor of judges, Leisa Wall, was blown away by the quality of entries this year, saying that "the calibre of entries this year was truly outstanding, and there are definitely some entries from this year that will go down in history". With such high praise, it's clear that this year's finalists are truly exceptional.
The awards show will take place at Shed10 on March 30th, and it promises to be an unforgettable night.
