That last comment made us smile, given the only two of the other entrants to win accolades in our category – both winning bronze awards – were Shell Philippines, and the Disney / FOX enclosure at a major TV industry festival in Cannes! In this 17th year of the competition, judges assessed entries across various categories from 3,800 organisations in 63 nations and territories. The ten judges for our category were drawn from around the globe – including Australia, China, Germany, Italy, the USA and other countries.We're hugely proud!
