The Loeries Travelling Exhibition is an inspiring display of the advertising that turned heads and made people take notice across Africa and the Middle East. It is on view at the Vega School in Durban from September 23 to 27, 2019.

The Loeries, a non-profit company, is Africa and the Middle East’s premiere initiative that recognises, rewards, inspires and fosters creative excellence in the brand communication industry. As the highest accolade for creativity and innovation across our region, the Loeries promotes and supports creativity by helping marketers, agencies and consumers appreciate the value of ideas and fresh thinking. 

Culminating in the biggest creative gathering across the region, Loeries Creative Week brings together the best innovative minds from our industry for a festival of networking, inspiring minds and recognising great work.  

The Loeries is the only award across Africa and the Middle East that informs the global WARC Creative 100, a showcase for the best creative work in the world. Successor to the prestigious Gunn Report, WARC collates the most important advertising awards from around the world to produce a global list that ranks the most creative companies and campaigns. 

If you are considering studying any aspect of advertising, design or brand communication, this is an unmissable opportunity to be influenced by the Loeries 2018 winners and the talent of the best creative minds from our continent.

“The creative economy offers so much potential for our economy – the opportunity to employ our talented youth and to turn their ideas into something valuable, while creating revenue,” says Loeries CEO, Andrew Human. “I hope this exhibition inspires talented youngsters to follow their heart and make their passion their career.”

The Loeries Travelling Exhibition runs until September 27 at the Vega School, The Glades Office Park, 70 Armstrong Avenue, La Lucia.
