pedigree-adoption-drive-donation-glasses-image-600-68723.jpgColenso BBDO NZ has continued on its winning streak, and has been named YoungGuns International 2012 Advertising Agency of the Year. The Auckland-based agency won four awards in total - one Gold Bullet, two Silvers and a Bronze - as well as having nine finalist entries.
 
The YoungGuns recognise the best young (aged under 30 years) talent in the advertising and communications industry. Jae Morrison was awarded the Gold Bullet in the Best Use of a Single Channel category, and a Silver in Television/Cinema for the Donation Glasses campaign for Pedigree.

Says Nick Worthington, Colenso BBDO's creative chairman: "I'm thrilled for the guys. Jae, Simon and James are exceptionally talented and bring a truckload of great ideas and creativity to the agency.
 
"We like to think we have an unfair share of the talent locally and internationally. Being named YoungGuns 2012 Advertising Agency of the Year confirms our suspicion that we have some of the best young minds in the world working with us."
