It takes the bravest and the boldest to put forward their work to be judged and appraised. To everyone who submitted entries, thank you for trusting us with your work. We honour your courage and creativity.
The greatest work can be found at the confluence of art and strategy, a careful balancing act that results in ideas that shine and businesses that grow. But how to choose what is best?
To our judges thank you for the long hours and the heated debate that has brought us to this point where we find ourselves staring at a very special shortlist of finalists.
We would like to congratulate all the marketers, their brands and their partner agencies who have been shortlisted to win a 2019 MAA award you have set the bar exceptionally high.
These awards recognise and reward successful marketing initiatives and highlight world-class campaigns that display vigour, insight, authenticity and innovation in their strategies. Only the greatest minds, the truest ideas and the boldest approaches will walk away as winners on the night.
Good luck to you all.
If you haven’t already, bookings are open to attend the summit and award ceremony on 26 – 27 June at Sun City: marketingsummit.co.za
