As part of the Creative is Native initiative, six new campaigns have been added to CreativeIsNative.com website to showcase the very best of Irish creative advertising.
Each year, submissions are made by creative directors from all disciplines and from all agencies for inclusion into the country’s showcase. The submissions are voted on by their peers, with each agency being allocated one vote, and only submissions receiving the highest scores are published on the site.
The six campaigns that made it through are as follows:
The Zero Carbon Billboard was created with message that promoting sustainable vehicles isn’t itself very sustainable. With the stats on the CO2 emission from Outdoor ads themselves, VW turned to the humble tool of a pencil, and created a hand drawn a billboard using traditional skilled signwriters and illustrators in- situ over a 48 hour period.

Me?Nah was created as a recruitment ad for the National Ambulance Service. While the National Ambulance Service is widely known across Ireland, there is a perception that you need to be medically trained to work there. You don’t. See the campaign here>>
The World’s Strongest Women campaign created for Allianz. In 2020, as Covid-19 rampaged, domestic abuse soared by 43% in Ireland. Homes were being protected, but the people inside them weren’t, inspiring Allianz to partner with Women’s Aid. Read all about the campagna and watch the video here>>

The 2023 additions to the showcase were announced at the IAPI Creativity Means Business event which was held this week in Dublin.
Speaking about this year’s Creative is Native process, IAPI President and creative director, Bonfire Sean Hynes says: “Well, the cream really rose to the top with the latest round of creative work to make it onto the Creative is Native platform. The creative community has voted these six stellar campaigns to have passed the exceptionally high benchmark of being world-class examples of creative work from Ireland. Well done to all involved; you know who you are. And a huge thanks to all the agencies and creative directors for submitting their work, judging the work and supporting this initiative. It is hugely appreciated.”
