This week The 2017 Loeries came to a close. The annual award ceremony recognizes and celebrates creative excellence in the brand communication industry across Africa and the Middle East. Y&R was proud to bring home awards across six of our agencies in the region – the highest number of contributing winning offices for a network at the festival. Y&R winners were awarded from Creative Y&R (Nairobi), Advantage Y&R (Windhoek), Y&R Dubai, Y&R South Africa (Cape Town and Johannesburg offices) and Labstore South Africa, Y&R’s Johannesburg-based shopper marketing business unit.
Y&R also celebrated a series of firsts across the region:
“It has been an exceptional year for Y&R in Africa and the Middle East from a creative point of view when looking at the spread of awarded work across categories this year,” says Graham Lang, Chief Creative Officer of Y&R South Africa and Africa. “Creating a connected creative community throughout the region is something that I have been focused on. But success comes from having the desire to do great work, so congrats to all involved.”
Big congrats to all winners – time to pop some champagne!
