[Brianna Graves] There is no doubt that South Africa's advertising industry is already present on the world stage. But are those leading the industry doing everything possible to prepare for the future and to ensure a continued and well-established presence on that world stage? Who will step up to the plate to represent SA on the same global stage that will connect the worldwide creative community on Portfolio Night 10 on 23 May 2012?
Damon is one of the most brilliant (and awesome) guys I've ever met. Sydney is lucky to have him. Best of luck Damon! As to the future of the ad industry awards, The Tomorrow Awards were founded in 2010 under just the premise Damon describes. The industry has changed and will continue to, and as such the Tomorrow Awards are category neutral and inclusive/educational for this ever-changing industry.
