Joe Public member wins Loovre competition

2 Aug 2006 15:28
Xolisa Dyeshana from Joe Public impressed judges of the Loovre 2006 design competition the most with his 'arresting' SABC TV License creative, and has walked away with first prize. Andy Croly from C Squared Productions was awarded second place for his 'extra long' Durex poster, while Kamogelo Sesing from Young & Rubicam received third place with his work on The Salvation Army campaign.

Dyeshana will receive a Panasonic PWD Plasma TV while the second and third place winners will receive Playstation PSPs.

According to Primedia Unlimited subsidiary The Letter Corporation (TLC), the competition received great support from the creative and design industry.

Andrew Kramer, managing director of TLC, says that it's encouraging to see the enormous amount of design talent available to the industry. "The judges were hugely impressed by both the response to LOOvre 2006 and the volumes of creative and design talent revealed by the competition," he says.

Dyeshana's clever use of illusory mirror panels gives viewers the impression of a gloomy non-payer in jail, and implies that it is really bad - criminal - not to pay for TV licences.

The panel of judges were: our very own Louise Marsland, Bizcommunity.com editor; Brendan Seery, executive editor, Saturday Star; Colin Ramparsadh, managing partner, ZenithOptimedia; Adam Wittert, media director of FCB; Wicus Swanepoel, managing partner, Nota Bene; and Andrew Kramer, managing director, TLC.

TLC is thrilled by the interaction the competition created in the industry.

Let's hear it for Young & Rubicam Hedley Byrne. Great creative work for a reatil agency. Kamo has just managed to dispell the notion that people in reatil just sell beans. Rock on bad boy!

How can Joe public win with an account they don't even have?!!-
It's a pro-active competition, you choose your own client. If you are in advertising you should know. I am not from Joe public but the ads that were done are hotttter than those of Jupiter.

robert-
Who does Durex belong to? If Jupiter jhb has the account howcome it is placed under permark as client. Plus why did lowe cpt just win a gold cannes for durex? Who the hell does this account belong to???? or does it belong to no one and everyone is scamming. PS. Jupiter it's time to let go of this campaign, it's old and stupid. you can do better.

2.Ever produced any pro active work.... Hmmmm

Isn't it funny how sour we get when people achieve things we can only dream of...cheer up Sam there's always next year.

Well done to all the winners.
