Innova (Innovation), Grand Prize

Developed by Clemenger BBDO, Sydney, the Mimeisthai project is an experience that brings to life the theme of TEDxSydney: "Real. Live. Now." The one-off installation, launched in May 2012, visualized the flow of ideas around the room at the conference in real time, creating "trending topics" by parsing through the hundreds of conversations taking place there, and putting keywords on a display on the main screen.

See Asia's Most Creative Advertising Work

Asia Adfest recognizes the top creative from the Asia Pacific region.

An animated viral smash about death and a solar stunt were among the top winners at last week’s annual Asia Pacific Advertising Festival in Thailand, celebrating the best creative work from across the region.

From 3,507 entries, jurors, led by Graham Fink, CCO of Ogilvy & Mather China, gave out eight Grand Prize awards. The top performers at this show are among the work typically pegged to win at Cannes, adland’s big show in June.

Among the triumphant at Adfest: a beer ad with an irreverent attitude toward cinematic chase scenes and an Australian PSA that became a full-blown meme.

Have a look through winning work from Ad Fest in the slide show above.
