EDGARS GOES IN-HOUSE
THE JUPITER DRAWING ROOM Johannesburg has been awarded the Edgars department store media-planning portfolio, billing around R200m/year. Jupiter is gradually bidding to move media planning back in-house and has been handling Jet and other Edcon brands for more than a decade.
THE LOERIES has created a new accolade – the Ubuntu Award – to recognise the positive influence of brands on the social and physical environment. Entrants need to demonstrate a brand’s positive social or environmental impact through an ongoing campaign relevant to the brand.
The award is sponsored by Hetzner.
McCANN-ERICKSON has won five new clients, with billings collectively topping R400m in the space of two months. The clients are in telecommunications, office automation, insurance and fast-moving consumer goods.
