What a disappointing month. Maybe everyone was too busy pitching or something, but there were very few entries, and hardly any handsome ones. For what its worth though, the winners were all worthy.

Film was won by the newest member of the creative circle, a start up agency who has lived up to its name in their first ad for Elliot International. It’s the ad where the guy drops his cat out of the apartment block window because he forgot that he had moved. That commercial just pipped Drive Alive “Road kill’, a disturbing but beautiful set of portraits of dead animals on the road – I don’t even want to know where they got the cast for this one. In third place was Coca Cola/Powerade “Ice Rugby’.

I’m going to gloss over radio quickly because the memories are just too painful. First place; Nando’s “Tony’. Second Place; Cape Argus “Dictator’. Third Place; Windhoek Light “Bottomless Pitt’.

The Magazine work however was very cool. Fox P2 continue doing good stuff on National Geographic by winning for their campaign for their Kids Afrikaans Magazine, campaign entitled “Afrikaans is anders’. It’s a simple campaign that is beautifully done. That was followed by Toyota Rav 4 “Shifted Plates’ and third placed Cape Legends/Neethlingshof Wines “Honest wines’.

The wining entry for outdoor was a clear winner points-wise, from Saatchi CT for Two Oceans Aquarium “Entrance’. Basically a door way to the Two Oceans Aquarium is floated in the sea below the bridges at the V&A Waterfront. Ford Focus S.T “Speedy’ came in second, followed by Multichoice/M-Net “Uninterrupted Movies’.

It’s clearly been an exhausting end to the year for all. Rest well and have a safe and peaceful break.

Over and out.
