Cactus and GSP are double winners in OMA Q3 awards

Wide format printers Cactus Imaging (owned by outdoor advertiser oOh!media) and GSP Print (owned by JCDecaux Australia) each won two awards in the Outdoor Media Association’s (OMA) Quarter Three Creative Collection competition for 2022.

There were a total of 37 entries from OMA members including BIG Outdoor, Blue Tongue Outdoor, Civic Outdoor, goa, GoTransit, JCDecaux, oOh!media, QMS, Scentre Group Brandspace, Shopper and TorchMedia.

“This quarter’s Creative Collection competition represented a wide range of excellent Out of Home advertisements, starting from simple, clever ideas, to big, audacious displays,” said OMA CEO Charmaine Moldrich. “The always clever and humorous, Specsavers continue to riff on ‘Should have gone to Specsavers’, using a tried-and-true line of copy and the poster space to cut through with their brand message, juxtaposed with new 3DOOH tech from BINGE’s House of the Dragon campaign, creating an optical spectacle.”

Competition judges included Aldo Ferretto (creative director at The Hallway), Angelo Poli (head of sales at The Media Shop), Edwina Moller (brand manager at BONDS, HANES Brands) and Mark Buckley (GM of Civic Outdoor).

Poli said: “I liked The Guardian Live Headlines campaign as it echoed back to the days of old where we saw our daily headlines on a newsagent’s poster; this simple tried and true idea was used to transform DOOH panels into modern-day headline breakers. It functions as an extension of the online world and gives passers-by news notifications in real time.”

Moller: “I was excited by the many great campaigns that were out and about last quarter. The entries have definitely inspired me to think differently about what I could do with my brand in the future.”

Ferretto: “The Without Them National Missing Persons Week campaign was the clear winner in the Out of Home for Good category. The impactful, human element inspires action, and the creative does a nice job of showing the reality of long-term missing persons using the power of the poster to get the message across.”

Buckley said: “From a media owner perspective, it is wonderful to see the high calibre of creative. We talk a lot about technology and innovation and it’s absolutely true that the OOH space has never been so dynamic.”

Launched in 2013, the Creative Collection celebrates ‘the big, bold, and audacious canvas that is OOH’ by recognising exceptional campaigns in each quarter.
