1 Caples for 6 Beers – and the whole award credit business

Holler has received the good news that 2 1 finalist at the Caples Awards in New York went to us and BMF. The project “6 Beers of Separation” was entered by BMF in several categories and among others received accolades in Interactive. I strongly recommend coming to an agreement between digital specialists and (for lack of a better term) ATL agencies. After some intense and ultimately rewarding campaigns with BMF we now came to an agreement which will take some of the stress out of crediting who for what at award time. And nobody needs more cat fights at Cannes.

All entries on tightly integrated campaigns will be entered jointly and effort, credits and fees shared. Interactive/Online-focussed categories receive a Holler/BMF entry, categories that look at the integration/360-aspect of the campaign feature a BMF/Holler crediting. Campaigns such as “6 Beers” (Tooheys Extra Dry) and “Birds vs Humans (Tooheys Extra Dry 5 Seeds) rely so much on the interactive work and at the same time stem from unique narrative, style and ideas that it doesn’t make much sense to separate the agencies behind it.

Update: It was my error to assume that the Online category would be about our part of the campaign. It wasn’t and therefore the 1 Caples is the only finalist where Holler shares a mention with BMF. Hope this makes everything clear and takes any non-existing controversy out of the game.

Friends in Digital Advertisements

Just stumbled upon a former colleague, grinning excitedly inside a teaser panel (Western Australia website by NetX/BBDO). I know that “above-the-line” (what line?) agencies occasionally use their own staff in photo shoots either to meet a tight budget or simply stroke their own ego. But it seems like digital executions are still semi-expected to cut cost by using googled web images, ripping off some flickr artist or creating assets from literally nothing.

Though that is not to say my mate Nick is not the best possible choice for this execution…

Maybe I’ll open a Flickr or facebook group on “Friends in digital ads”, anyone seen something like it already?
