Presenting on creativity in London in Amsterdam

The APA presented on creativity in London, featuring APA members work and how to access the APA Collection, at sourcEcreatives Source Presents event in Amsterdam last week. 

We also met with the Amsterdam Agencies Heads of TV group, to discuss share information about London production, contracts and other documents, such as the Pre PIBS, which we introduced them to and understand their objectives, which we and the Amsterdam agencies Heads of TV group envisage as the start of dialogue to share information and to organise projects to facilitate a greater flow of work between Amsterdam and London.



A Night At The Museum

A great night at the Natural History Museum last Thursday saw an audience of 900 join us for the premier of the APA Collection and the party that followed.

The APA Collection is published as a DVD through the next issue of Shots and the full list of credits accompany that - see below for an overview of the commercials that formed The Collection.

We have lots of photos of the night - what a beautiful/handsome & glamorous lot you are - published on the APA Facebook page (

 A prize of a bottle of Champagne to whoever tags the most!


Tonight's the night

We have 850 people attending from the APA Show at the Natural History Museum in London tonight.

This is your guide to how the evening works.

7pm Doors open and the drinks reception too.

8pm Screening of the APA Collection in the main hall of the Natural History Museum (the one with the big dinosaur- you can't miss it!). The APA Collection is a non stop greatest hits of the best commercials of the year, projected on to a huge screen, demonstrating the talents  of the APA membership- and agencies too.

9pm Dinner and drinks are brought to you (no tables). Once again we have invested in the best caterers in London to provide a cornucopia of fine foods to enjoy- and soak up the alcohol. 

10.40pm DJ Mausi plays records and we dance.

1am They ask us to leave.

If you are joining us for what is regularly described as the most enjoyable event in advertising, we look forward to seeing you this evening.




BBC to commission APA members for its commercials

The BBC have announced that they will not renew their contract with Red Bee for the production of their commercials and idents, when their contract expires next year.

The BBC endorse our view that APA members and the breadth of talent they represent, competing in the open market, will help the BBC create the best quality and value advertising.

With the quality of expertise available to advertisers and the intense level of competition, procurement systems and preferred suppliers can not offer better value than the market.

We look forward to fostering a great new relationship between the BBC and APA members and seeing great commercials on the BBC.


London screening of the winners of Young Directors Award 2014

We are pleased to invite you to the London screening of the winners of CFPE & Shots Young Directors Award 2014 which was held in June in Cannes. The event will be hosted by the APA with Rushes on the 24th July from 1830 at Rushes Roof Deck, 66 Old Compton Street, London W1D 4UH (please see invite below).

We organise the YDA in Cannes with Shots and other European producers associations, as Commercial Film Producers Europe. APA members always do well and this year was extremely successful for UK based production companies and their young directors; Nexus, Park Village/Able&Baker, Pretty Bird, RSA, Blinkink, Offkey Creatives, Rattling Stick and Academy Films - they all received awards and recognitions in various categories. We are hoping to be accompanied by the awarded directors too to join to celebrate the success and watch their work amongst other films awarded this year and to show the whole of the sixteen minute film JONAH that won the special jury prize, among other things, from Kibwe Tavares at Nexus and the nine minute film on Chicago gangsters CHI RAQ from Will Robson-Scott (now represented by HLA).

It is a good opportunity to enjoy interesting new work and, if you were not able to attend the screening in Cannes, get a sense of an event that has provided a great platform for new talent at APA members for the past 14 years- and continuous to do so.

If you would like to attend, please RSVP here by the 21st July 2014.
