The 2019 B&T Awards experienced another highly successful and exceptionally entertaining year. The sell-out event saw over 750 people flock to The Venue in Alexandria to raise a glass (or five) and honour the best of the best across Australia’s advertising, marketing and media sector.
BMF picked up NSW Agency of the Year, Advertising Agency of the Year and was crowned B&T Agency of the Year. Three major agency awards; an extraordinary result unheard of in the history of the agency that further adds to the ‘Effective Agency of the Year” title earned at this year’s Effie Awards.
Long-term client ALDI Australia also took home the Marketing Team of the Year award.
Here are some of the judges’ comments so you can have a sneak peak into why they were selected.
STATE AGENCY OF THE YEAR – NSW
Judges’ comments: “You demonstrated an obvious focus on people and culture. Great to see you focus on this! Loved hearing from your staff with all different levels of tenure. Culture scorecard is a brilliant idea! It was very clear what makes you different. I also appreciated the level of commercial success you were able to share. Well done on an exceptional entry in a very talented and competitive category!”
ADVERTISING AGENCY OF THE YEAR
