DDFH&B and Mediavest’s ad Playground for Dublin City Council has won the October NNI Press Ad of the Month competition. The ad is part of a campaign for Dublin City Council entitled Dublin Graffitied.
The ad asks newspaper readers to think about how the money paid to remove graffiti from Dublin’s streets could otherwise be used. Paddy Treacy wrote the copy. Mark Shanley was the art director. Mediavest planned media. Congratulations to the team involved and to Dublin City Council.
This month’s competition was judged by Pat Lemasney of Southern Advertising and Michael Walsh from Bloom, in conjunction with our adjudicating chairman, Martin Wright. Martin said this about the ad:
“Simple, well art directed, nice interesting fact. Does newspaper advertising justice.” Thank you to all of our judges.
