TVNZ Award for Marketing Leadership
The award, given for the best performance of a campaign, was one of the most hotly contested categories with 15 finalists. The judges agreed that the Let’s Talk Crap!’ campaign showed “Marketing Leadership in an otherwise barren environment.” They commented that “It was a bold concept... but the ROI was evident and it had a big community impact”.
Mad Ideas was amongst a select handful of agencies to receive multiple nominations and was also a finalist in the ‘Best Government Sector’ and ‘Marketing Innovation’ awards.

We entered the 'Let's Talk Crap' campaign we created for the Far North District Council into the New Zealand Direct Marketing Awards. We were up against some of New Zealand’s biggest agencies and were thrilled to take home the Gold Award for Best Campaign in the Government/Public Sector.

Tall Poppy Business Awards
We took a break from entering any awards for a couple of years but were pleased to be recognised this year with the Gold Award for Service Industry at this year’s Tall Poppy Business Awards. The awards are designed to recognise, encourage and celebrate outstanding business achievement across the region.

Tall Poppy Business Award
The 2010 Top Energy Tall Poppy Business Awards was a truly golden night for Mad Ideas and our customers. We were very excited to take home the Gold Award for the Service Industry Category, and equally pleased for our clients Nic and Neil Brazier from the Pear Tree Restaurant & Bar who won Gold for Best Emerging Business.
A special congratulations goes to our longstanding client Natural Timber Creations, who won both Gold in Manufacturing and the Judge’s Special Commendation Award.
