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.

MORE UBUNTU

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.

BIG FIVE

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.
