The Loeries is an annual South African award that not only acknowledges and develops creative excellence in the field of marketing and advertising, but also in terms of graphic design and digital media.
Last year, students in this subject group received three Loeries - one silver and two bronze.
The chairperson of the Loerie awards, Mr McCann Erickson, said that the high standard of the Loeries guarantees that the winners can compete internationally.
Here are this year’s Loerie winners with their lecturer, Mr Wessie van der Westhuizen. The winners are Gert Schoeman (bronze), Suzan van Wyk (bronze), Yvonne Lombard (bronze), Magdel Smith (gold) and Carla Erasmus (bronze).
