Creative Circle

Ad Of The Month

Ad of the Month is chaired every month by a Creative Circle Exco member, and 9 other creatives who have a good awards track record. The chairperson has the right to view the judging panel and change it accordingly.

The categories are: Film, Print, Press, Radio, Outdoor and Experiential (every three months).

You may enter your print work in one of the following categories: Newspaper, Magazine or Poster, but not in all three.

You may enter your work as a campaign or as single entries. Judges reserve the right to decide whether a single ad or a campaign is awarded.

First, second and third placings will be announced every month.

First, second and third places will automatically be finalists in the Creative Circle Ad of the Year awards.

Campaign and single entries are R200.

The judging procedure of choosing your top three ads or campaigns per category remains. Debate is encouraged, but only after the results have been tallied. The results cannot be amended.

Chairman's Comments

The critics (me included) have been moaning about the state of film in SA. Well, they can all go to hell (me included) this month, because there was some world-class stuff. The winner, by a single point, was #Network BBDO for Doctor. A masterfully told story about a blind doctor, dramatises Coronation's brand platform of how trust is earned. In second place is Ogilvy Joburg for Topsy Foundation. In third place is Metropolitan Republic for FNB.
