This year has been a great Cannes Lions for South Africa with a total of 27 Lions being awarded to 10 different local agencies. It’s also great to see the Lions being awarded across a number of different disciplines, including mobile, a category very relevant to us, and one with a lot of potential for great creative work to come.
Ogilvy Cape Town were the big winners this year with a total of 7 Lions (1 x Gold, 2 x Silver, 4 x Bronze). Next up were NET#WORK BBDO, DDB and TBWA, all with good showings. To see all the local winning work follow the relevant links below:
The second night of the 2012 Cannes Lions awards is now behind us and South Africa is still doing well, walking away with another 6 lions (4 x Silver, 2 x Bonze). Ogilvy Cape Town had another great night with two Silvers Lions including one for the first ever Cannes Lion Mobile award for SAB’s Be the Coach. Great to see Black River FC and their Nando’s “The last dictator standing” campaign get a bronze for integrated media use. Also good that TBWA\HUNT\LASCARIS’s fun “Mommys Boy” poster for Enterprise polony got a Silver. Well done to all the finalists and winners so far.
Only two more awards nights still to come, for now you can see all of last nights winning South African work below. Enjoy.
