2010 Bookmarks awards announces finalists

Judges for the Bookmarks awards, the country's premier platform for recognising excellence in the online space, have announced their choice of finalists for the 43 publisher and agency categories.

"With more than 400 fantastic entries to sift through this year, our expert panel of judges really had their work cut out for them," says Nikki Cockcroft, chairperson of the Bookmarks awards and deputy-chair of the Digital Media and Marketing Association (DMMA), which organises the awards. "They were amazed by the high standard and volume of submissions this year. The quality and quantity of entries is testimony to both the growth and vibrancy of digital advertising, marketing and publishing in South Africa."
