justONE awarded Advertising Agency of the Year.

2013 has started with a bang for the agency! After our hugely successful showing at the NZDM Awards recently, on Tuesday night we were awarded Fairfax Media/AdMedia Agency of the Year 2013 in the under 20 staff category.

While most awards we enter are for client campaigns, Agency of the Year celebrates the overall business success of agencies the combination of strategic vision, management excellence, financial acumen and award achievement that make them outstanding.

The awards were again hosted by Mary Lambie, who prefaced the winner anouncements by stating that the judging process had been ruthless, with only those entrants who met the highest standards being named finalists. Judges even declined to name a winner in two categories as they felt they hadn’t demonstrated the level of exceptional performance required!

We were stoked (and relieved!) to hear our name called out as the winner of our category – a win made sweeter knowing that the entry was scrutinised so thoroughly and such a high standard applied throughout the judging process.
