To the Outdoor Awards, where adland folk were typically too cool for school.

There were those who didn’t turn up at all to pick up their trophies (JayGrey’s Jay Furby). And those whose demeanour suggested that the mere act of putting down their beer and heading to the stage was too much of an effort (most of the rest of them).  

Even chairman of judges Jonathan Kneebone couldn’t make it as he was in the UK. Or as host Host Kitty Flanagan put it: “He just doesn’t care enough.”

Dr Mumbo was relieved that two agencies seemed genuinely pleased with their haul.

Us Sydney made the most noise on the night, while the team, from Jack Watts Currie were appropriately pleased to win best in show.
