Three projects have been awarded Finalist status from this year’s Immortal Awards ANZ jury day, qualifying for the regional round of judging.
The first APAC session of the year saw an initial shortlist of 17 projects debated and deliberated by a jury from across Australia and New Zealand.
The jurors were tasked with deciding which projects, if any, were to qualify for the regional round of judging as ANZ Finalists and represent the market on the regional stage.
Following a session packed full of fun, insightful discussion, three projects were deemed strong enough to qualify for the next round.
The Immortal Awards 2022 ANZ Finalists are:
Matilda Bay Brewery - Rejected Ales (submitted by Howatson+Company)
ROLLiN' - Larry (submitted by Bear Meets Eagle On Fire, Revolver & The Editors)
Waka Kotahi New Zealand - Toll Booth (submitted by FCB NZ)
The three projects will go up against the best work from the rest of the APAC region on Friday 18th November. In that session, jurors will decide which projects will go on to represent the regional in the final, global round of judging.
