Last chance to get tickets to the Stoppies – a look back at the year that was in New Zealand advertising

In what has become a yearly tradition, marketing and advertising news site StopPress is presenting its rundown of the big pitches, the big ideas, the big balls, the big stoushes, the big moves and the big whoopsies. You can vote for your favourites ahead of the Stoppies Event on 14 February over on their site here, or read on to find how to nab yourself some tickets. 

After a successful inaugural event in 2017, this time around we decided to kick off the year with a reflection on 2018… and hopefully make it into the books as the first big party of 2019.

Set to occur on 14 February (Valentine's Day, how romantic), the event will see winners in each of our categories announced and presented with a finely crafted doorstop trophy. Winners will be selected by the editorial team while you’ll cast votes to select the People’s Choice in each category.

Buy tickets here.

But this is not your standard awards night. You can leave your tuxedo in the mouldy region of your closet and come in whatever robes you’re wearing on the day. It’ll be a casual event with a twinkle in the eye. The Stoppies is really about bringing the industry together for a drink and to salute the moments that defined the past year.

A big thanks to our inaugural naming rights sponsor oOh! for kicking off the year with us.

Without further ado, it’s time to get voting – cast your vote for your favourite campaign, agency and more here
