PANPA shows off the industry’s best ads online

ONE hundred of the most inspiring newspaper advertising ideas of the last year have been published online by the Pacific Area Newspaper Publishers’ Association (PANPA).

To celebrate the success of the 2009 Ad Awards, PANPA has created a Digital Showcase of entries that is now available at the association’s website.


PANPA chief executive Mark Hollands said: “We believe this is unprecedented. We don’t know of any other awards of this kind in the world that has had almost all of its entries put on show for everyone to see.

“The Digital Showcase allows our members, and the wider industry, to share ideas, be inspired, and celebrate excellence.”

The Showcase – hosted by Realview Technologies – features entries that were submitted through the new online system provided by Workstream Solutions. PANPA accepted further entries by other means that were judged as normal.

Judges’ comments have been included in the Showcase for the featured categories.

“This is not intended to be a comprehensive list of entries and categories – we’ve only included those that fit the format and add to the Showcase’s appeal,” Mr Hollands said.

“We tried a new way of entering this year and the Showcase is just one benefit of the templated, automated system.”

PANPA’s annual Newspaper of the Year awards program is set to launch next week.
