Flow Communications has continued its winning ways at the New Generation Social and Digital Media Awards, winning six awards across a variety of categories for five different clients.
The six 2018 awards that Flow Communications garnered last night – two gold, three silver and one bronze – are a fantastic achievement, and bring the agency’s total to 36 since 2014.
This year, according to awards MD Stephen Paxton, a record number of entries were received across 42 categories, from a record number of agencies, corporates and individuals, and representing hundreds of South African brands. This made the competition stronger than ever before.
Flow Communications chairman Bheki Shongwe says, “I’m so proud of the Flow team for winning these awards. They certainly are testament to the exceptional work we produce for all our clients – and that we have done so consistently over the years. Well done, Team Flow!”
The annual New Generation Social and Digital Media Awards are among the most prestigious digital media awards in South Africa and serve to honour creative agency teams for their innovative use of social and digital media, and cutting-edge use of online media and tools. The awards also include corporate companies and their in-house marketing teams for their work on campaigns that help promote their organisations and brands in groundbreaking ways.
“I am delighted with the six awards that we secured last night and would like to thank the entire Flow Communications team for their continued dedication to excellence. This accolade is testament to the high calibre of our work,” says Tara Turkington, CEO of Flow Communications.
“Flow Communications does not do work to win awards, but we feel honoured to be acknowledged by the industry for work that stands out. Flow has won across a range of disciplines and clients, which is aligned with our aim to remain agile and versatile and to not only meet every client brief, but to add that something extra that gets their brand noticed.”
