 GUEST JUDGE /BEST AD OF THE WEEK   WORLDWIDE    January 14, 2019 09:21 (Edited: January 14, 2019 20:21)
My pick is a timely dose of empathy from McDonald's. When your mouth's like a fur boot, Maccas beats all cures.
A decent budget for a New Year Day tactical spot; the eye patch was a nice touch at the end.

Runner-up: Belgian Kid's Fund.

Winner: The Berlitz language school "Happy Hour" is a simple insight. Nicely art directed and shot, you still understand the characters even sans tete.

Runner-up: JAXTyres.

Winner: Postobon. Our Flavor has no race. It's a clever idea and a brave client move - as it slightly exposes the realities of food colouring - but I liked it.

Runner-up: Pridefest. The Equality Bridge.

Winner: UNHCR. Step With Refugees. Pretty simple way you can relate and donate to the refugee dilemma, through a connection of your steps to theirs. My pick.
