Creative Circle Monthly Award Winners for June to August are announced

Johannesburg – The winners for the Creative Circle Monthly Awards, for work flighted between June and August this year, were announced as part of the official opening of Havas Johannesburg’s new offices in Rosebank.  

The duties of Jury President were shared by CEO of FCB, Brett Morris and Fiona O’Connor, Joint-Executive Creative Director of host agency, Havas Johannesburg.

“Today’s judging was interesting due to a considerable amount of blurring between traditionally clear categories which are no longer as defined as they used to be. The debate around what fits where in today’s creative categories was really lively and left the panel with something to think about regarding the future of judging for industry awards,” said O’Connor.

The jury constituted a combination of senior and junior creatives from Creative Circle member agencies, allowing the judging process to act as an all-important training ground for up-and-coming South African creatives. The panel included:

- Tim Beckerling, Creative Director, Net#work BBDO
- Estee Grobler, Senior Creative, Etiket
- Reece Iver, Creative Group Head: Art Direction, The Niche Guys
- Assaf Levy, Creative Director, Joe Public
- Ronald Mabe, Art Director, M&C Saatchi Abel Johannesburg
- Alettie Marx, Creative Head, JWT Johannesburg
- Palesa Motiki, Copywriter, Ogilvy Johannesburg
- Grant Sithole, Chief Creative Officer, Avatar
- Nikki Taylor, Creative Director, TBWA Hunt Lascaris Johannesburg
- Maxine Twaddle, Copywriter, Grey

The categories judged were Communication Design; Integrated Campaign; Digital & Interactive Communication; Film; Live Communication; Radio; Print; Out of Home and PR & Media Communication. Not all categories placed winners.

All the Monthly Award winners for June - August 2018 are listed in the table below. All winning work can be viewed on here.

The Creative Circle represents advertising and design agencies, and only Creative Circle members are eligible to enter the awards. All monthly winners are shortlisted for the Annual Awards that will take place in March 2019.
