Loeries 6-in-a-row for Ogilvy

Ogilvy South Africa celebrated its sixth consecutive Grand Prix at the 2019 Loerie Awards, the region’s largest advertising festival. Continuing its remarkable winning streak, Ogilvy once again took home the shows highest accolade. This year the award went to Ogilvy Johannesburg for the ‘Shave to remember’ campaign for Philips and The Nelson Mandela Foundation. The campaign spread positive messages about Nelson Mandela’s legacy – through his unique haircut – in the centenary year celebrating and honouring his life. All whilst raising funds for The Nelson Mandela Foundation.

Ogilvy Johannesburg also scooped the only gold awarded this year for effective marketing with ‘The World’s First Baby Marathon’ campaign for Kimberley Clark. This is the third gold for Ogilvy in this important category and underlines their emphasis on creating work that works. The targeted digital campaign drove an ROI of 29:1 and a sales lift of R191 Million, alongside and earned media value of R2.4 million. This follows Ogilvy’s recent success at the 2019 Apex Effective Marketing Awards – where they took home the Grand Prix, making us the most awarded agency for work that creates a positive and direct consumer impact.

Ogilvy also shone brightly in the Loeries Digital Categories, winning the most digital Loeries with nine in total, including two golds for Social Media and Digital Advertising. In total Ogilvy won 26 awards at the weekend with; nine gold, eight silver and eight bronze Loeries, plus the coveted Grand Prix. Winning across an impressive mix of disciplines from Social Media to Live Activations, Online Film, Out Of Home, Print, Mobile Media, Media Innovation, PR, Radio, Integrated and Effective categories.

Pete Case, Ogilvy’s outgoing CCO commented, ‘Winning at Loeries is always an incredible achievement for any agency or client. This weekend’s achievements were made especially rewarding for us due to the wide spread and volume of work that we won for. Real work on real brands – Kimberley Clark, Investec, Philips, The Nelson Mandela Foundation, Castle Lager, Carling Black Label, Doom (Tiger Brands), Volkswagen, Schweppes, Cadburys, Clorets and KFC. Thank you to all these clients and to our own teams that partnered and pushed so hard to make work that truly stands out from the clutter – and that creates a positive business impact using creativity. Thank you also to the judges that rewarded us with these accolades.’

Alistair Mokoena added, ‘The blend of work that we won awards for this weekend underlines our positioning as a true Modern Marketing comms agency that brings together storytelling, data, insights, technology and digital media to deliver performance. We are exceptionally proud to have led the Digital categories this year.’ Case continued, ‘A final congratulations from everyone at Ogilvy South Africa to Andrea Quaye from AbInBev for her Marketing Leadership award, and to Alistair King, who was inducted into the Loeries Hall of Fame.’
