COI shortlists two agencies for digital anti-smoking brief

The Department of Health is seeking a digital agency for its anti-smoking account.

COI, which is handling the review, has shortlisted two agencies to pitch for the three-year contract, with a final shoot-out set to take place in two weeks' time. The winning agency will produce online work to support the DoH's anti-smoking advertising activity.

The account has previously been assigned on a project basis. The most recent online anti-smoking drive was created by Lean Mean Fighting Machine.
