Outdoor Media Association (OWN) has announced the winners of the 2022 Quarter Three Creative Collection competition.

There were 37 entries OWN members including: BIG Outdoor, Blue Tongue Outdoor, Civic Outdoor, goa, GoTransit, JCDecaux, oOh!media, QMS, Scentre Group Brandspace, Shopper and TorchMedia.

Guest judges included Aldo Ferretto (creative director at The Hallway), Angelo Poli (head of sales at The Media Shop), Edwina Moller (brand manager at BONDS, HANES Brands) and Mark Buckley (GM of Civic Outdoor).

OWN CEO, Charmaine Moldrich, said: “This quarter’s Creative Collection competition represented a wide range of outstanding Out of Home advertising, from simple, smart ideas to big, bold displays.

“The always clever and humorous Specsavers just keep going… Should have gone to Specsavers using a proven line of text and poster space to push their brand message, juxtaposed with new 3DOOH technology from BINGEs, House of the Dragon campaign, creating an optical spectacle.”

Poli said: “I liked The Guardian Live headlines campaign as it echoed to the days of yore when we saw our daily headlines on a newsagent’s poster; this simple, time-tested idea was used to transform DOOH panels into contemporary headlines. It functions as an extension of the online world, providing passers-by with real-time news alerts.”

Moller said: “I was excited about the many great campaigns that started this quarter. The entries have certainly inspired me to think differently about what I could do with my brand in the future.”

Ferretto said: “The Without them The National Missing Persons Week campaign was the clear winner in the Out of Home for Good category. The impactful, human element inspires action, and the creative does a great job of showing the reality of long-term missing persons by using the power of the poster to get the message across.”

Buckley said: “From a media owner’s perspective, it’s great to see the high level of creativity. We talk a lot about technology and innovation and it is absolutely true that the OOH space has never been more dynamic.”
