Contender: If You’re Separating, We’re Here To Help
Agency: DDB Sydney
Client: Westpac

Nominated by:

Duncan Shields, creative director, Redengine SCC:

This year’s work is nothing short of a masterclass in 90-second storytelling. Highly emotional, completely believable and beautifully shot, I’d love to see this do well.
