2012 Finalists announced for year’s best radio ad file type .pdf

The finalists include some of the best known advertising agencies in Australia including Clemenger BBDO;
BMF, DDB Sydney, Leo Burnett, McCann, AJF Partnership, The Monkeys, Eardrum Australia and kwp! in
Adelaide.
An overall winner, who receives the Gold Siren, as well as a winner in each of the three categories: single,
campaign and craft, will be announced at the breakfast. The Gold Siren winner is decided by a panel of
industry experts, known as the Siren Creative Council.
The 2012 winner will be automatically entered into the Cannes Radio Lions – to be held in June and its
writer will also win two tickets to attend the festival. This year, for the first time, the client of the winning
2012 Gold Siren Award will also be going to Cannes, alongside the creatives who wrote the ad.
Chief executive officer of Commercial Radio Australia, Joan Warner said this new element of the prize
recognised the important role clients play in driving the writing, production and delivery of high quality radio
ads.
“There is also a client-voted award, of a $5000 cash prize to the writers of the ad voted the best by a panel
of clients.”
Ms Warner said the quality of Australian radio ads was improving each year. “Each year the bar is set
higher at the Siren Awards with fantastic creativity and production displayed by all the finalists, “Ms Warner
said.
Last year’s Gold Siren winner was a campaign called “Slow Mornings” for 7-Eleven, written by Andrew
Woodhead and Eamonn Dixon from agency, Leo Burnett Melbourne.
Ms Warner said the Siren Awards provided a great opportunity to recognise excellence in Australian radio
advertising.
The national Siren Awards are run by Commercial Radio Australia and are designed to recognise the best
radio advertising in the country.
The best radio ad for 2012 will be announced at a breakfast on May 4 at Encore, St Kilda Beach in
Melbourne. Tickets are available for $70 plus GST.
