South Africans win big at the Clio’s

Miami Beach, Florida, USA - An Innovative Media entry for Adidas created by TBWA\Japan and Internet entry by Tokyo's NEC Media Products walked off with a Grand Clio each for Best of Show at the International Clio Awards' Print, Design, Internet and Innovative Media Awards Gala. Wieden & Kennedy New York took the Grand Clio for a Sega/ESPN campaign in the new Content & Contact category at a dedicated ceremony last night.
Local creatives did South Africa proud by winning a slew of awards. Net#work BBDO was awarded one gold, two silver and three bronze Clios across the categories of Innovative Media, Print and Poster, Television and Integrated Campaigns for their clients' brands: Astra, Suzuki, Corsa Lite and Virgin Atlantic. According to Deputy Creative Director, Julian Watt: "South African creativity is a strong contender in the international arena. It is great to see this coming through - especially in the major awards shows such as The Clios."

Daddy buy me a pony, the Creative Unit of the 9November Union, won a Gold Clio for their Afro Magazine Design work. This brings 9November's awards total in just one week to three Gold awards: one Clio's and two Golds at the One Show Awards.

Also scoring gold for SA were: Herdbuoys McCann-Erickson, Johannesburg for Health Care Services in the Print category; and Saatchi & Saatchi, Cape Town for Osram – Iris Package Design in the Design category.

The Content & Contact category, the new award category for the Clio Awards Festival, is the first of its kind to recognize innovation through the effective marriage of breakthrough creative and contact with consumers by virtue, Wieden & Kennedy New York's Innovative Media campaign for Sega/ESPN is the first to scoop up a gold and the Grand Clio. The other gold in this category - an entry must win a gold to be eligible for the Grand Clio - was awarded to TBWA\Japan's Adidas campaign, the Grand Clio winner in Innovative Media.

The Clio Awards are the globe's most recognized international advertising awards competition. Founded in 1959 to celebrate creative excellence in advertising, Clio inspires and pays tribute to one of the most interesting and influential art forms in modern culture.

Known for its world-class juries, the Clio Awards focus on creative work in the fields of advertising and design, specifically in the areas of TV, Print, Outdoor, Radio, Integrated Campaign, Innovative Media, Internet, Design and Student work. Clio also serves the global design and advertising communities through its annual conference, festival, publication, newsletter and screenings of winning work.

In the Print & Poster competition, which also includes Billboard, the Print & Poster Jury, co-chaired by South Africa's Mike Schalit, Executive Creative Director for Net#work BBDO, Johannesburg and Kirk Souder, President & Executive Creative for Publicis Hal Riney, San Francisco, awarded 16 gold, 25 silvers and 87 bronzes. In Integrated Media it awarded one gold statue, no silver and two bronzes; and in Innovative Media it awarded four gold, three silvers and 12 bronzes. In addition, they conferred one gold (Miami Ad School/San Francisco), two silvers and two bronzes in the Student category.

In the Print Public Service Campaign sub-category, gold statues were awarded to Jung von Matt AG for Der Kleine Nazareno (a project to help street children in Brazil), McCann Ericson/Madrid for Doctors without Borders, and AlmapBBDO/São Paulo for the Eye Care Foundation.

The Design Jury, chaired by Marc Gobé, President/Executive Director of Desgrippes Gobé & Associates, New York, awarded four gold Clios: Afro Magazine/9November, Cape Town for editorial design, Osram-Iris/Saatchi & Saatchi, Cape Town and Converse Shoe Boxes/Sandstrom Design, Portland for package design, and Blush Lingerie/Scholz & Friends, Berlin for point-of-purchase.
