All the 2009 AdVantage AdMag winners

"I am deeply humbled by this honour and will treasure this day for the rest of my life," veteran journalist Tony Koenderman told the audience after being honoured as a Lifetime Achiever at the 2009 AdVantage AdMag Awards at Moyo Zoo Lake in Johannesburg, yesterday, Thursday, 13 May 2010.
The AdVantage AdMAG Awards have become a sought-after accolade for magazines in the consumer magazine industry in South Africa and recognise the editorial skill of the editors in steering their magazine brands to publishing success. The emphasis is on editorial strategy, content, innovation and excellence.

Last year AdVantage added a new category: the Innovative Digital Publishing Award to recognise the publisher which has successfully launched an online edition of their magazine. This award was again sponsored by this year.
