‘Best Emerging Designer’ was awarded to Britt Lloyd, Priceline Studio, winning the accolade and the $1000 prize. Britt Lloyd was thrilled to be a winner on the night, “I am delighted to be honoured the award for Best Emerging Designer. A special thanks to my team at PMP Digital - Priceline Studio, the ACA and everyone involved for their recognition. Without the support of my team, I could not have achieved all that I have,” commented Lloyd.

The Top Three Best Emerging Designer Finalists, James Dulce, Target, Vicky Kijumnuayporn and Samantha Foster, Silvan, are all worthy of commendation in a well-deserving list of ‘Best Emerging Designer’ entries. “Congratulations to Britt Lloyd and all of the other finalists for a competitive year. I’d like to thank the ACA for the opportunity to be a finalist in a group of such talented designers,” commented James Dulce, Campaign Designer, Target.

It was BMF’s night with Lead Retoucher, Rhiannon Jansma, crowned Winner for ‘Best Emerging Talent’, “I am humbled to be honoured the award for Best Emerging Talent. This award is not only for myself, but to all of BMF and all of ALDI who have supported me through my journey to get here tonight.”

The ‘Best in Class’ Award went to Claire Skinner for their outstanding work in ‘Transcendence’. Finalists for this category included Voice, Our Agency and Digita Press. “Thank you to the ACA and PMP Limited NZ for this honour, and congratulations to my fellow nominees. Transcendence is a deeply personal project for me. Inspired by fragile beauty and fearless strength, Transcendence reaches beyond natural beauty to convey the power of the human spirit. I would like to dedicate this award to my beautiful mum who inspired Transcendence,” commented Claire Skinner, Creative Director, Claire Skinner.

The night was not all Awards as the major announcement of the evening was that the ACA will merge with two other industry Associations, APIA and TSA Limited, to form The Real Media Collective. ‘Real’ media pays homage to the physical nature of print, and ‘real’ connecting with real results, return on investment, engagement and activation.

Kellie Northwood, Chief Executive Officer, ACA concluded, “The ACA Awards are about celebrating and showcasing talent and creative design throughout the year, and we will continue to showcase Retailers, agencies, printers and distributors efforts as we start our journey as The Real Media Collective.
