State Of The Media – July 2019

Leigh Andrews, editor-in-chief of Marketing and Media at Bizcommunity!


If it’s July, it’s time to look back at the biggest global creative work that’s won recently.

I’m talking about the 66th Cannes Lions Festival of Creativity. This annual showcase of the world’s best work took place from 17 to 21 June, with SA bringing home 8 big wins. Along with interviewing some of the SA attendees, we also revealed the accuracy of the SA judges’ predictions and compiled overviews of the nightly winners, as well as the overall Grands Prix and SA stand-out work from the likes of TBWA Hunt Lascaris, King James Group, Ogilvy Joburg, Network BBDO South Africa, and VMLY&R South Africa..

But our Cannes Lions coverage isn’t over yet! If you haven’t yet done so, book your tickets for the Full Circle event, taking place next week in both JHB and Cape Town. Held in conjunction with the Creative Circle SA and Ster-Kinekor Sales, the top trends and insights, as curated and presented by The Creative Circle Cannes Lions representatives and our roving reporter Ann Nurock, will be revealed. The sessions, which will mine the best of this year’s global award-winning campaigns and trends, will be of key relevance to creatives, businesses, marketers and anyone with a vested interest in current creative best practices.

Stepping back into June’s #YouthMonth focus, we also have all the winners of the 15th Sunday Times Generation next Awards. Nike was once again awarded as the Uber Cool overall winner, as well as the Coolest Clothing Brand, the Coolest Footwear Brand and continues to hold the Coolest Brand Slogan. Click through to the article on site for the full list of winners.

And ending on a sombre note, a memorial service was held to celebrate the life of Giles Shepherd on 5 July at St John’s College in Johannesburg. Shepherd died on 24 June at the age of 49 after a brief battle with cancer.  He co-founded Brand Alive Group in 2001, a leading international brand development consultancy.
