Active and IVE win hatful of Shop Awards
Active Display Group and IVE took home no fewer than five gongs each from the Shop 2020 awards, with Active scoring two Golds, while Dashing Group took out the People’s Choice award.
Receiving the awards for Active Display Group, its general manager Stuart Gittus said, “We are thrilled to welcome five shiny new members into the Active family. A big congratulations to our team and clients Uniqlo, The Walt Disney Company and Myer for their Shop Association Australia and New Zealand award winning campaigns."
Active took Gold in Window Displays for its Uniqlo linen project, and in the Store Design category for the Disney Giftorium, it took Silver in Store Design and Large Store categories, and Bronze in the Centrum Printing Produced in ANZ award.
Dashing Group took out the People’s Choice in the Pinnacle Awards, for its Spread the Merry visuals for Australia Post. IVE was on the podium with three Silver awards, in Category Management, Environmental Stewardship, and Liquor – Permanent Display for its Johnnie Walker Glorifier 200th Year, and two Bronze in Category Management, and Consumer Electronics.
Shop ANZ introduced new categories to the 2020 Awards, including the Centrum Printing Produced in ANZ Award, which aims to foster local home grown design and manufacture, and the Gold medal taken out by Double Impact Displays for its Dell gaming table at JB Hi-Fi.
Shop ANZ general manager, Carla Bridge, said despite the setbacks of 2020, the standard and quality of entries to the Awards only increased.
“Australian and New Zealand retail marketers appear to have used the challenges of the past 12 months as fuel to work harder and smarter, producing some of the best work we’ve seen for years,” Bridge said.
“This year’s winners combined ingenuity, design flair and solid insights to win the hearts, minds and wallets of shoppers in what has inarguably been the toughest environment in living memory.”
