M Division’s David Mannah was proud to see the AHFA’s come to life. “It’s a thrill to see the most inspiring people within our industry all in the one room, and awarded for their exceptional skill. The night was a sell-out, demonstrating the importance of events such as this one to continue to inspire our Australian creatives to strive for excellence on a global standard,” said David.
