Says Colin Wilson-Brown, chairman of judges: "I'd like to thank the first round judges for their time, insights and scrutiny. To see such a high number of finalists progress sends a strong message around the value of the work being delivered by our industry. The next round takes that further, with cases and results assessed by panels of senior marketers, providing a client perspective on how agency work is driving business performance."

The Effie winners, Effective Agency of the Year, Effective Advertiser Award, and Grand Effie will be announced at a presentation in Sydney on Thursday 30 August.

The Effies are jointly presented by The Communications Council and the Australian Association of National Advertisers (AANA) in association with Think TV. Other sponsors and supporters include Displayground, Facebook, Healthcare Communications Council, Shootsta and UnLtd.
