Amazon pitches its Australian creative account

E-commerce website Amazon is on the hunt for an Australian creative agency ahead of its arrival into the local market, Mumbrella understands.

Amazon is yet to announce when it will officially commence its Australian shopping service however industry sources say the pitch is taking place in Sydney where the company’s local AWS operations are currently based.

In Seattle, China, India, Japan and the UK, Amazon uses an in-house creative agency which creates and produces content, design, video, photography and UX to service its needs for its global and subsidiary websites.

It is unclear which agencies are currently pitching and Amazon declined to comment, currently the service is being slated to start later this year with the company’s first distribution centre reported to be located in Dandenong on Melbourne’s eastern fringe.
