For A Cure Foundation ad wins round one 2013 Sirens file type .pdf

Written by Gav Chimes and Tommy Cehak from
agency, JayGrey in Sydney, the ad is called “Daniel”.
Winning writers, Gav Chimes and Tommy Cehak said their inspiration for the ad came from exploring the
benefits of stem cell research: “It’s a powerful thing but there’s little awareness about it. There’s a lot of
misunderstanding when it comes to stem cell research. For this reason, the general public doesn’t think or
talk about it, and remain largely unaware of the benefits. We wanted to wake people up by reframing the
issue and focusing on the suffering that can be alleviated.”
Highly commended in the single category was an ad for Ikea called “Gas Leak” written by Tim Green and
Karen Ferry from agency, The Monkeys in Sydney.
Also highly commended in the single category was an ad for SBS called “Bite Me Vietnam” written by
