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!

The Big AdGig 2011 - your vote can kill a team.

"The most historic advertising decision since Pantone 128 vs. Pantone 129." Yes, The Big Adgig is on again, and it's up to you to vote for the video you think are good - chiseling the 15 video shortlist down to eight. Remember kids, every time you vote "a junior gets its wings". This explains all the fly-swatters seen in creative departments.

This is Sara Nitz' submission.

Satirical game about the troubling supply chain - can't have that. Phone Story is banned from App store.

Phonestory is an iPhone game that shows the "troubling supply chain" of how the minerals are mined in Coltran, the suicides at the factory in China and the fanboydom of getting the latest gadget whetherr you really need it or not. The plan of the game creators, molleindustria, was to redirect the money earned on the game to the organizations that are fighting corporate abuses.
