Digital shines at the 2011 Loeries

Gloo celebrated another great year at the Loeries, winning more awards than any other digital agency. The team added 11 awards to its tally, which now stands at 53 Loeries, including two Grands Prix, won over the past five years.
With the Hoff mixing it up on stage, digital had a strong presence across the show's various categories, including print, outdoor and integrated, proving its growth and increasing value in South Africa's marketing mix.

As in previous years, Gloo demonstrated its ability to shine across the widest breadth of digital marketing, with wins for online advertising, websites, email, viral campaigns, touch screens, digital billboards, and integrated campaigns.

Pete Case comments: "With digital taking the main Grand Prix of Sunday night's show, the industry has shown a huge leap forward in profile and has a great deal to celebrate. It's an exciting space to be working in right now and we're very proud of our team's output this year, as well as our clients' continued belief in creativity to create cut-through for their brands."

Templar Wales adds: "Despite the large growth in our team this year, we've been able to maintain a very high standard of work. It's an amazing achievement for all involved."

The full team from Gloostad and Glooburg attended the event, together with the marketing team from Castle Lager.
