With many of South Africa's top agencies in attendance, this year's Assegai Integrated Marketing Awards, held in Sandton, were a prestigious affair.
"With 12 entries shortlisted, it was always going to be an exciting evening for us, but to pick up 10 awards is something we are incredibly proud of," said Gorilla CEO Jordan Wallace.
It's been a good 2015 for Gorilla, picking up several new accounts, and doing well in the various industry awards. They took home four MMA Smarties trophies in August, were shortlisted for two EMEA Smartie Awards, and have 13 campaigns short-listed in the upcoming New Generation Awards.
"We're privileged to work on some amazing brands, with marketers who aren't scared of investing in bold campaigns. These awards recognise that," said Michelle McEwan, Gorilla's Managing Director. "We've also got a handful of exciting campaigns launching soon, and we're hoping to see them doing well in the next year," she added.Gorilla's Assegai scoop includes:
