Pendoring 2005 finalists

The finalists in this year's Pendoring Advertising Awards competition are dominated by two Cape Town-based agencies. FCB Cape Town leads the pack with 16 finalists while Daddy buy me a pony/9 November has 11 finalists. The Johannesburg-based agencies Net#workBBDO and Lobedu Leo Burnett have 7 and 4 finalists each respectively.
This year's international judge, Edward Bardoul, senior copywriter with the agency Euro RSCG BLRS in Amsterdam, was very surprised with the quality of Afrikaans advertising.

Because Afrikaans "is such a niche language with a limited target market," Bardoul did not expect such an established "tradition" of advertising. "Afrikaans advertising is very witty and makes use of smart ironic humour and self irony. Afrikaans advertising is also very verbal and there is a clever and funny play on words."

He was also very impressed with the standard of graphic design and believes Afrikaans advertising can compete with the best in the world.

Hanlie Kriel, copy writer with FCB Cape Town and also one of this year's judges, believes Radio, TV and Design stood out as very strong categories. "The work in these categories was fresh and very original. The competition was especially tough in the radio category."

The website entries in the New Media category were simply not up to standard, Kriel believes. "Cute copy is not enough. There must also be a concept which forms the basis of the whole site," she says. For this reason the judges decided not to nominate any finalists in both the New Media Advertising and Website categories.

Although the entries in the category for Student Campaigns were very good, Kriel felt that the entries in the other student categories were disappointing. "This is the one time in your career when there are no rules and restrictions and I don't think the students made full use of this freedom."

It was also decided not to nominate any finalists in both the Student Website and Single Entry categories, but only in the Student Campaign category.

Apart from the entries for Pendoring's usual categories, there was a lot of interest this year in the new Homegrown category for all South African indigenous languages. This category produced some interesting entries and Kriel believes that if this year's entries are anything to go by, then this new category for indigenous languages will grow from strength to strength.

The complete panel of judges, apart from Bardoul and Kriel, include Peet Pienaar (Creative Director: Daddy buy me a Pony), Flip Hattingh (Art Director: Net#work BBDO), Eben Keun (Art Director: Breinstorm Brand Architects), Kagiso Musi (Head of Client Services: Publicist), Hanneke Schutte (Vega Brand Communications School), Madelet du Plessis (Freelance copy writer), Wilma de Bruin (Freelance media and advertising journalist) and Jabulile Koapa (Copy Writer: Joe Public Johannesburg).
The specialist judges were John Culverwell - Radio (Director: Sonovision), Roelof van Wyk - New Media (Director: Trigger) and Willem Kempen - Print Media (Assistant Editor: Production: Beeld).

The judging of this year's Pendoring entries took place from 22 to 24 July at the offices of the ATKV in Randburg.
