Award comments

Vanessa Pearson made the following comments on the awards:
Newspaper - six entries in this category, with Fox P2's campaign entry for Masterlock taking first place - a neat idea simply executed. DDB's well art directed Mango campaign took second place.

Experiential - 20 entries in this category with Joe Public taking first, second and third place for its Pendoring calendar, Spier Wines festive corks and Rock for Aids Foundation campaign. However, the majority of the ideas in this category were below par, as was the way in which they were entered. Unfortunately, there still appears to be some misunderstanding as to how to package entries in this category, with no clear flow plans for instance, and that makes it almost impossible to judge some of the work.

Radio - 17 entries with Ogilvy's ‘I'm a let you finish' DSTV campaign being a worthy, well-produced and funny winner.

Film - 19 entries with a clear winner for King James and its beautifully produced Allan Gray ‘Legend' spot. Fox P2's ‘Roots' Frisco ad was fun as was the campaign for Medal Paints produced by Lowe Bull JHB. It was suggested that the Medal Paints logo sequence needs a little tweaking.
