Tourism Australia managing director John O’Sullivan said the ad had achieved the ultimate success of capturing the imagination of both Americans and Australians alike.
“Nobody is prouder nor cares more about how their country is marketed overseas than Australians, and that was certainly a huge consideration for us when we developed ‘Dundee’,” he said.
“With this ad, we wanted to have some fun, elevate the Australian way of life and really lean into our personality. I’ve loved seeing the smile it puts on people’s faces.
“To get the vote of the Australian public and be the inaugural winner of the ‘best ad’ category is a proud moment for Tourism Australia and a huge honour.”
