Last week Ocean Netherlands rolled out the Ocean Digital Creative competition into the Dutch market.

The competition aimed to reward the very best ideas, that are yet to happen took an international flavour after 11 successful years in the UK. The awards ceremony had both a live and augmented event held in Amsterdam’s museum district.

The competition was hard fought with 74 entries from Dutch clients, brands and agencies – a phenomenal number for Ocean Netherlands first competition and a reflection of the importance of Digital Out of Home in the Netherlands and a superb reflection on the creativity in Holland.
