    “Overall, it is encouraging to see how entries have improved and increased year on year. South African agencies, corporates and students are producing some great work and this is an affirmation that the industry is maturing and getting better and can only go from strength to strength if the improvements in the entries over the past few years are anything to go by” says MD Stephen Paxton.
