Five things in five minutes

Five things in five minutes
Friday 23 March, 2018

We're kicking off this week's edition of Five Things in Five Minutes with a fresh new look, an outback escape, and all the winners from this year's Mumbrella CommsCon Awards. Read on for your weekly hit of what's making news. 

1. Access-DGC takes unlocks the NT

This week our intrepid Account Manager Laura Minns has been discovering the outback with Tourism NT, spending the week in Alice Springs and Uluru. From witchetty grub fry ups (yes, really), to cuddles with kangaroos and spectacular champagne sunsets to boot, you can catch her Instagram takeover here.

2. Creatives making posters for protestors

Creatives around the US are providing free poster designs for those taking part in March For Our Lives on March 24. Hosted on the Signs4OurLives site, around 105 designs are available. 

3. Cynthia Nixon to run for NY Governor 

Sex and the City actor Cynthia Nixon has announced her candidacy for Governor of New York state. We couldn't help but wonder...do we need another celebrity in politics?

4. AI recreates the voice of JFK

Using AI technology, The Times has recreated the voice of John F Kennedy so he can give the speech he was meant to on the day of his assassination. 
Touching on freedom, power, wisdom and restraint, listen to the Dallas Trade Mart speech here. 

5. CommsCon Award winners announced

The winners of the 2018 Mumbrella CommsCon have been announced and our own Nichola Patterson was one of the judges and handed out the award for best PR-Led Event or Activation of the Year. This year the trophy went to the Outthink Melanoma campaign by Text100 with Ogilvy & George P Johnson for IBM Australia.
