Week jammed packed with creative events at the Loeries. Here is a highlight of some of the events we attended. Congratulations to all 2012 Loerie winners. Click here to view the results and full credits.
The focus of the awards is to recognise and reward the best examples of brand communication in our region. The role of the jury is to reward excellence and to inspire greater things; the aim of the judging process is to seek out work and ideas that are exceptional, out of the ordinary.
All work is judged according to five criteria:
- An innovative concept, bringing new and fresh thinking;
- Excellent execution;
- Relevance to the brand;
- Relevance to the target audience;
- Relevance to the chosen medium;
Work must meet the first criterion, “an innovative concept, bringing new and fresh thinking” to be considered for a Loerie award. Work that excels in all the above criteria – work that is judged to be effective communication by the jury – represents Creative Excellence and will be rewarded with the highest accolade, a Loerie Award.
