BMF wins round 3 of the Sirens

BMF creative agency has won Round 3 of the 2023 Siren Awards with the ad campaign, Specials you can buy for ALDI Australia.

The radio ad series from creatives Kiah Nicholas and Emily Field featured a hero brand spot with an ongoing retail layer focussing on Special Buys products including washing machines, bed linen and barista-quality coffee machines.

Emily and Kiah said, “We had a quality job to do on ALDI Special Buys. So, when we started spit-balling, we found ourselves asking: what is special? Is the universe special? Earth? Humanity? Love? This microcosm? And out of everything in it, what makes ALDI Special Buys special?

“Then, in our state of existential-like insanity, we thought the obvious: It’s special, you can buy!”

The Sirens Council also selected the BMF produced Special You Can Buy – Atoms 1078’, as the best single ad of the round.

The ad is now in the running for the 2023 Gold Siren Award for the best radio ad, with the major prize being a trip for the winners and their clients to the Cannes Lions International Advertising Festival.

CRA chief executive officer Ford Ennals says, “BMF’s winning ad is another outstanding example of radio creative at its best. It delivers unique storytelling and introduces an unexpected element to capture attention.”    

Sound Engineer Nick Gallagher from Cue Sound studio took home the craft category winner for the West Australian Ballet piece, Music. Ballet. Side by side.
