Loerie winners announced


A total of 238 awards, including four Grands Prix and 26 Golds, were handed out in
the main categories of the 25th Loeries Awards, which took place on Saturday 21
and Sunday 22 September at the Cape Town International Convention Centre.

The Loeries is an annual recognition of the best work produced in the brand
communication industry in the region – including the whole of Africa and the Middle

Says Loeries CEO Andrew Human: “The awards show that digital is finally being taken
seriously in the South African media mix, although traditional media still represents
the majority of entries.’

Digital entries now comprise just over 10% of the total number of Loeries entries,
and the trend is clearly towards integrated and digital communication.

The awards were judged by over 140 local and international experts in their fields,
including four international jury chairpersons from Hamburg, Sydney, Kansas City and
Antwerp, as well as regional judges from Dubai and Kenya.

Grand Prix awards were awarded to Engen’s Fire Blanket Calendar, Alternative Media
& Field Marketing entry by DraftFCB; Volkswagen’s Street Quest, Digital & Interactive
– Social Media entry by Ogilvy & Mather Cape Town; Frank.net’s Death Doesn’t Have
To Try Very Hard Radio Campaign by FoxP2; and MTN’s The Everywhere Library
Media Innovation entry by MetropolitanRepublic.

New in 2013, the Effective Creativity category, sponsored by Woolworths, allows
previous Loerie winning entries to be measured for effective business results. The
Gold award went to South African Breweries’ Be the Coach by Ogilvy & Mather Cape
Town, and which was a Loerie Grand Prix winner in 2012.

“George belongs amongst the great South African brand leaders and previous
recipients of this award,’ says Loeries CEO Andrew Human. “He is a legend in the
