24.com continues to be acknowledged as a leader in digital publishing with eight wins at this year's Bookmarks Awards.
Last night the Artscape Theatre in Cape Town played host to the 2012 Bookmarks Awards. These annual Awards recognise the best in digital media and marketing in South Africa and this year the event clearly showed that the digital industry has upped its game.
Geoff Cohen, CEO of 24.com was at the event to support his team as they collected 24.com's awards. "We are always honoured to be recognised by the Bookmarks. This year's entries have been particularly awesome and a clear indicator of the growth in creativity, execution and overall engagement in the digital media space," said Cohen. "So we are particularly proud of our wins."
