The finalists have been announced for the 2016 AWARD Awards, and just quietly, we’re pretty stoked at our accomplishments so far. The awards represent an annual ode to creative excellence in the commercial industry and it’s an honour to have been recognised as exceptional within our field. With four finalist positions for the Craft in Advertising award, The POOL COLLECTIVE dominates the photography category as the only production company nominated.

With an impressive four finalist positions, AWARD celebrates the powerhouse photography of Simon Harsent. From his dark and empowering photographs for Glassons nominated in the individual category, to his vibrant and liberating work for Tiger Beer’s ‘Uncage’ in the campaign category, 2015 saw Simon produce exceptional work in the advertising field. Simon’s work has also been recognised in the Poster and Outdoor category for his collaboration with J.Walter Thompson Sydney for Imodium’s ‘Set Yourself Free’ campaign.

Imploring the masses to ‘See Inspiration’ where others see the everyday monotony, Ingvar Kenne produced a series of beautiful work for NAS alongside 303 MullenLowe – placing them as a finalist beside Simon in the campaign category. Well done boys.
