This is an exceptional achievement, according to McCann, since the competition draws only the crème de la crème from all corners of the globe, and the 2007 field of finalists was represented by a total of 59 countries. The competition recognises the world's best creative work in television, cinema, outdoor, design, print, radio, and interactive advertising.
Enthuses Martin Hummel, group CEO for the McCann Worldgroup South Africa, “Having Tanya as part of the McCann Worldgroup team heralds the integration of a new breed of fresh, innovative and dynamic talent. McCann is especially proud of the recognition that Tanya has been given for her excellent work.”
