The Andy Awards shortlist - telling stories is back, in new forms.

The Andy Award Shortlist seems to have a new way of telling stories in common. Advertising was always about storytelling. Lets take a closer look at some of the shortlisted work, shall we?

A very clever use of all the media and sharing tools available to us today is the Troy library integrated campaign. It repositions the issue in the consumers voters mind, by telling a story with the same tools everyone else was using, just a lot blunter. Remember when "estate tax" name changed to be called "Death tax"? Here they changed "Tax rise" to "Book burning party" as the effect of voting no would shut down the library.

Decapitated golden horse-head mailer freaks out brands in Sweden

Gyllene Hästen (the golden horse) are reminding agencies and clients out there that they're eligible for an award if they just enter. I was in the jury last year together with some old-school virtual friends of mine as we all used to hang out in the Swedish advertising forum Bold back in the day. At the end of a long day of casting votes we had two entries with the same score. We really wanted to saw the golden horse in half and call it a day.

AAF Dallas ADDY's reminders, only for the obsessed - like us.

This years ADDY's were according to the AAF "The best ever" with over 450 entries, over 400 attendees and a wonderful evening of celebrating the best work in Dallas. Of course they also made some fun films like an award show is won't to do, and I need to Badland at least one of them. Congrats!

THEY challenges you: a brief should be brief can you answer it in 140 chars?

Amsterdam ad agency THEY are seeking interns who understands that a brief should... you know... be brief - and the best ideas can be briefly explained as well. So they set up a twitter-challenge, @TweetaBrief where they've tweeted out 140 char briefs and creatives can respond either with tweets or DM's.

The winning intern gets 6 months paid internship at THEY Amsterdam, and better still: "the winning intern will live in this neighborhood Plantage Muidergracht". OOoh, fancy. I hope they don't mean in the dodgy half-sunken boat on the left there.

There's only 24 hours left on this, answer one of these briefs for a chance to win!
