Yeah! They did win a bronze. But what they did is they shamelessly copied the idea and execution of an entry
titled ANIMAL TREE which won a ONE SHOW DESIGN MERIT in 2008, which is 3 years back. They only made it
Black and white. See the link.

Shame on DDB Singapore! This enry was never an original one.The idea and execution are the same as our entry ANIMAL TREE
which has won ONE SHOW DESIGN MERIT in 2008. You just made it Black and white. For those who have doubts,

A lovely execution of an inevitable idea. @MadAdman, I can see the frustration in seeing an idea you've used being used again, and winning a different award; must sting like holy hell. They followed the same thinking, and maybe took the image a few levels deeper because they had newer Macs. Really sorry to gently say it, but I don't think they copied you. On the ad: lovely layout, predictable but crisp.

MadAdman, it's done and awarded. Time to move on.
Rather than bothering yourself about how this may or may not have been copied, how about focusing on the next idea instead?

Ease up dude.

to me both ads are quite stupid. The fight is just for the award which is also stupid.
