“Originality and the shared lessons of experience enabled the winners to forge a meaningful connection and rapport between marketing communications and commercial outcomes,” observed Dato’ Johnny Mun, President of the Association of Accredited Advertising Agents Malaysia (4As).

“As far as the Effie Awards are concerned, ‘Ideas that work’ is a truism that cannot be challenged because it measures effective campaigns, both from a creative and commercial perspective.”

Effie Awards is the only global award that recognises effective marketing campaigns that successfully provide measureable results based on specific marketing objectives.

According to Aaron Cowie, Organising Chairman of the Effie Awards 2016, this year’s theme reflects the evolving state of the marketing communications industry – the rise of new digital platforms, the emphasis on digital transformation, the cluttered media environment, and the softening economy.

“The Effie Awards is aligned to the 4As’ objective is promoting commercial creativity and its effectiveness,” said Cowie. “The magical inspiration, originating from the brand’s communications and creative agencies, is to invest and stay focused on a Big Idea.”

The Silver was presented to Carlsberg, Maxis, AIA, BRAND’s InnerShine Prune Essence, and Safi Shayla, while BSN Malaysia, Huggies, KFC, Maxis, and MILO bagged the Bronze.
