Out of Home for Good steals the show in the OMA’s Creative Collection Q2

The Outdoor Media Association (OMA) has today announced the winners of the Quarter Two Creative Collection competition for 2022.

There were 33 entries from OMA members including: GoTransit Media Group, JCDecaux, Motio, oOh!media, QMS, Shopper, Tonic Media Network, TorchMedia, Vicinity Centres and Val Morgan Outdoor (VMO).

Guest judges included:

·                George Exikanas, Executive Manager, IAG

·                Kirsty Visman, Managing Director, Superdream 

·                Matt Bushby, Managing Director ANZ/ SEA, Hivestack  

·                Sev Celik, Commercial Director, Tonic Media Network 

OMA CEO Charmaine Moldrich said, “This quarter we saw how an effective Out of Home (OOH) advertisement can start with a single good idea. This was exemplified in the NAIDOC campaign, Get Up! Stand Up! Show Up! which won the Out of Home for Good category and was awarded the Q2 Grand Prix. The OOH for Good category was introduced in 2021 to celebrate effective creative developed for a government body or charity/not for profit campaign.”

George Exikanas, Executive Manager at IAG said, “3DOOH is slowly starting to make an impact in Australia and the TOP GUN work not only captured the essence of the film but also made great use of the site and the format itself.”

“It can be a challenge to translate a piece of art into an effective OOH campaign, but the NAIDOC campaign on the side of trams was a perfect canvas! It was beautiful, eye-catching, and helped the joy of the message shine through,” said Kirsty Visman, Managing Director at Superdream.

Matt Bushby, Managing Director ANZ/ SEA at Hivestack said, “For me, the Kayo Sports campaign and the NSW Department of Customer Service campaign are standouts as they used two of programmatic DOOH’s best features: location and context. It is great to see brands thinking creatively about message combined with placement, and getting the most out of Out of Home environments.”

“The submissions in the multi-format category were really interesting – I love to see how brands create big impact campaigns, by bringing best use of digital and classic together. The L’Oreal YSL campaign was the best example of this, engaging audiences in high traffic, contextual shopping destinations, and also incorporating a targeted experiential activation to complement their broader brand messaging,” said Sev Celik, Commercial Director, Tonic Media Network.

Launched in 2013, the OMA’s Creative Collection celebrates the big, bold, and audacious canvas that is OOH by recognising exceptional campaigns in each quarter. Campaigns are judged across the following categories:

·       Big, Bold, and Bright

·       Best Use of Multi-Format

·       Best Use of Digital

·       Innovation in Out of Home

·       Out of Home for Good
