All the big winners for the 2015 AMASA Awards announced

On 22 October 2015, The Advertising and Media Association of South African (AMASA) hosted the prestigious AMASA Awards at Room Five in Rivonia. Themed "Let me Entertain You", the evening certainly did just that, as did the winners submissions. For the second year in a row, media powerhouse MediaShop took home the coveted Roger Garlick Grand Prix for its execution of the Hungry Lion Lucky Bucket Campaign.
"This year's Roger Garlick Grand Prix winner demonstrated exceptional innovation in media and creative strategy and the judges where bowled over by the campaign's results, which far exceeded the client's expectations on aspects such as sales, coupon redemption and database growth," says Wayne Bishop, head of the AMASA Awards portfolio. "The campaign was truly multi-platform in nature and through optimised channels, platforms and creative, MediaShop were able to not only demonstrate a well thought out campaign, but also achieve outstanding results," completes Bishop.

Fiona Potgieter, Mobile Strategist from MediaShop said: "Through the Hungry Lion Lucky Bucket Campaign, MediaShop, in partnership with Yonder Media, managed to influence the consumer while his wallet was open! Overall, it was a great campaign, led by a great team, which produced great results!"

Other well performing agencies included PHD Media, Liquorice, Playmakers and Gloo@Ogilvy who each took home two AMASA Awards in various categories. With close to 100 entries in this year's AMASA awards, the judging panel, made up of industry specialists, had a tough job analysing and selecting this year's candidates.

Wayne Bischoff, AMASA Chairman says, "For the industry, The AMASA awards are there to celebrate 'all-rounder' media campaigns that are based on sound insights and great ideas, which are executed faultlessly to achieve outstanding and measurable results - all the while celebrating innovation. Congratulations to all those that produced the excellent campaigns that we saw tonight."
