Taika Waititi’s Blazed and Derin Seale’s Mistakes are named the winners of three gongs for the Clio awards. The awards will be presented on 1 October as part of Advertising Week in New York.
Hosted by Whoopi Goldberg, the Clio Awards event will also hand out some honorary awards to guests including Jerry Seinfeld and “iconic punk band” Blondie.
The NZ Transport Agency ad Blazed took a silver for direction. Mistakes took a gold in the short form category and a silver in the VFX category.
NZI Insurance ad The Devils Chair, directed by Damon Duncan was shortlisted for its animation work, done by Assembly.
Closer to home, Mistakes picked up two nominations in the Social Marketing/Public Service and Startegic thinking categories for this year’s Effies, which will run 9 October in Auckland. The Devils Chair also picked up an Effie nod, in the B2B category.
