All the Ciclope Africa 2018 winners

A total of 18 winners walked away with prizes at Ciclope Africa last night: 12 in the Branded Content category, which included sub-categories like Animation, Casting, Cinematography, etc.; five winners in the Special Categories, which included Low Budget, Long Form, Music Video, etc. sub-categories; and there was one Grand Prix winner.

The Grand Prix went to Beats by Dre – ‘Above The Noise’ which was directed by Terence Neale, produced by Park Pictures and created by agency JohnXHannes New York. Production Company of the Year was awarded to 03:07, and Agency of the Year to FCB Africa.

Last night, 10 April 2018, marked the first-ever African edition of the Ciclope festival – a leading international awards show which recognises exceptional craft in moving image. The African festival, which received over 150 submissions across 16 categories, was hosted at Cape Town’s new critically acclaimed Museum of Contemporary Art, Zeitz MOCAA.

Francisco Condorelli, director of Ciclope, commented, “Our panel of local and international Jury Members was impressed by the quality of work submitted across the continent; submissions which showcased not only innovative and creative execution – but importantly – technical expertise.

“This year’s entries have set a high benchmark for future regional legs, and we are encouraged by the success of the inaugural African edition of Ciclope, as well as the support received from the local industry.

“I would like to extend a thank you to all jury members, speakers, sponsors, organisers, attendees and entrants for playing a part in making Ciclope Africa a reality. We look forward to the next one,” said Condorelli.

The winners in each category, as well as the Grand Prix winner, will receive an automatic entry to the flagship festival, which will be hosted in Berlin later this year.

Ciclope, hosted annually in Berlin, Germany, is the leading international festival and awards ceremony that recognises and rewards exceptional craft in moving image. For the past eight years, Ciclope has provided a platform for directors, creatives, artists, producers and brands to celebrate exceptional work, share knowledge and be inspired.
