Skyrove is providing connectivity for the 34th Loerie Awards Annual Conference, which will be held in Cape Town City Hall, Cape Town, between the 15th and 23rd of September 2012.
What are “The Loerie Awards”?
The Loerie Awards were established in 1978 by the SABC as a mechanism to promote the new medium of the time–television.
Since then the awards have grown to encompass all areas of brand communication, including disciplines such as experiential field marketing, ambient media, and architecture.
With over 3,000 entries, The Loerie Awards is the largest and most prestigious award for advertising and brand communication in South Africa. The award is internationally recognised and is the only South African award used by the esteemed Gunn Report to determine global agency rankings.
Why a partnership with “The Loerie Awards”?
This event is the largest and most respected advertising award show in South Africa, and includes Africa and the Middle East.
The awards are attended by all the country’s top creative’s, agency leaders, marketing executives, media owners and media planners. Take full advantage of this audience both during the awards and by networking during Creative Week.
Outside of Creative Week, the Loeries have a year-round programme.
The Loerie Awards are also covered by local and national consumer press, as well as trade press. The Festival Weekend in Cape Town is enthusiastically followed by local residents as well as through the media.
The Loerie Awards programme
- Judging Week Seminar: Monday 17 September to Friday 21 September
- Awards Ceremonies: Saturday 22 September & Sunday 23 September
- Travelling Exhibition: throughout the year, dates can be found on the website.

This year sees a major change, because Judging Week will become a part of Creative Week Cape Town for the first time. It means that all judging will take place during the week Monday to Thursday and the Loeries Seminar will take place on Friday.
The awards ceremonies will be held on the Saturday and Sunday evenings. Also for the first time, the Pendoring Awards will be held on the Friday evening as part of Creative Week Cape Town.
All in all, these changes will result in a week-long promotion and celebration of the creative industry and offer fantastic opportunities for all Brand Partners.
