Advertising creatives have descended on Durban, South Africa for The Loeries Awards of 2018.
|Thought for the day|
Part of Creative Week it sees advertisers, creative directors, copywriters, art directors, designers, interns, students and many others flocking to Creative Week to gain inspiration from award winning adverts, case studies, master classes and so much more.
It all happens at the Durban ICC over the weekend and with them come hopeful students bringing with them their portfolio in the hope that they might catch they eye of that one creative director from a big advertising agency. From what I saw the future looks bright in advertising.
At the DSTV Seminar of Creativity we heard from worldwide creatives sharing their thoughts on advertising.
Some had bold insights and some really made us think. There was even beatboxing.
PMI Science has a bold initiative to create a smoke free environment. If you have a chance take a look at their interactive VR experience. It really is amazing.
For those of you interested in being an intern at a top advertising agency here is a great scavenger hunt for you.
