Nominations for the 2009 Icelandic Advertising Awards or "Lúðurinn" (as we of course call them) are in.
We are happy to have contributed work to four of the nominated projects, and will of course use this opportunity to brag here on the interwebs, so you think we are really cool, and want to work with us. And as always, we hurry to do this while they are still nominations, because 2009 was a good year in advertising in Iceland, and all this work has strong contenders.
Nominated for best TV ad, and best campaign, is Netvarinn for Siminn. The TV ad was directed by SagaFilm's Samuel and Gunnar for agency ENNEMM.
Arnar produced and performed the classic track with great results. You can check out full details here:
Nominated for best work in open catagory is a song, Suzy Thunder's BIG, which we produced for Vodafone and their agency Fíton. More details about the campaign and TV ad here.
The song did well in Icelandic charts and got good airplay, we are still giving it away here, where it has been downloaded over 20.000 times now. YouTube plays are up to almost the same number. We did club remixes as well, and gave them away here. The song hit the youth market spot on, and is still being played in clubs and discos, adding great value to the campaign for Vodafone.

We also did the sound design for this campaign for Filmus Productions, Hvíta Húsið, Umferðarstofa and VÍS insurance:
The spots, aimed at getting people to buckle up, were directed by Guðjón Jónsson. It is nominated in a category for public service commercials.
Finally we produced a radio ad "Kattskar", a clever script nominated for best radio work, for IKEA and their agency Íslenska. All in all, a good start to the day, actually.
