AdFocus introduces two new awards

30 Jul 2009 11:16
Entries for the Financial Mail's 2009 AdFocus awards opened this week with the announcement of two new awards this year - Digital Advertising and African Agency Networks.
These are in addition to Advertising Agency of the Year; Media Agency of the Year; Branding & Design Agency of the Year; Effective Advertising; New Broom award for hot young talent; Agency Leader of the Year; and Lifetime Achievement Award.

Previously the last three awards were reserved for individuals in traditional advertising agencies - now the judging panel will consider names from all agency awards categories.

Winners will be announced at the banquet on Wednesday, 25 November 2009 and published in the AdFocus annual the same week.

This year, each award category has its own questionnaire and one for non-qualifying agencies wishing to be included in the profile directory; however, entry is governed by editorial space. Questionnaires can be downloaded from
