oxfamYouTube, Cannes Lions & the Oxfam wants you to vote for the best video in their 48 Hour Ad Contest. From my knowledge there are two Philippine entries: one by Katrina Encanto and another by Apol Sta. Maria. Show your support and vote. :)


Leo Burnett Manila has won the hearts of judges at the D&AD Awards with its television commercial for McDonald’s titled ‘Counting Sheep’ making it the only Filipino entry to be included in this year’s D&AD Annual. Creative team includes Richard Irvine, Raoul Panes, Alvin Tecson, Mela Advincula. Watch the video here.


An advertising campaign poster produced by TBWAVietnam for Lego that pushes the innocence of young children to racism was spotted at the Campaign Brief Asia website’s Seen + Noted section. The ad was created by  Apol Sta. Maria and Birger Linke, with photography by Teo Studios. This ad is also a nominee at the recent D&AD Awards 2009.
