ICON Media for Fume Scent Lounge


NanoLumens for Singapore Changi Airport Terminal 4

McCann Systems won the the APEX Installation of the Year, which I totally agree with, and and bluemedia won APEX Content of the Year awards, which I totally didn’t.

I was a judge. Some of the awards, frankly, were all about big budgets and big wow eye candy stuff. Projecting on water vapour is cool, but the content was pretty darn pedestrian when compared to some other work.

That said, there were nine judges and they settled on these. I think my top choices lined up with about half of those selected.


  1. Hey Dave, fully agree with you, the content was average on a lot of the finalists. The dome was really not overwhelming, and it was only 15m ffs. Keep plugging away, you’ll turn the judges eventually!

    Cheers (and a happy Easter)
