This after receiving 19 nominations across eight different categories at the event.
At the Assegai Awards, Levergy earned a total of six nods. Three awards were for the Heineken #TeamHeineken Rugby World Cup campaign, including a Leader award for Face-to-Face Marketing, a Silver for Integrated Campaign and Bronze for Innovative Solutions. The agency also walked away with a Bronze for Integrated Direct Marketing Campaign with under R500,000 budget, for the Nedbank Cape Winemakers Guild, In Wine There Is A Story campaign, a Leader award for Integrated Direct Marketing Campaign for Energade Fueling South African Heroics and an Art Direction Bronze for the New Balance Runs in The Family campaign.
Levergy co-founder and director Struan Campbell said: “We’re absolutely honoured to be voted agency of the year for the third time and it means so much more to us now after the tough year our industry and the rest of the world has had. The pandemic really put our creativity and agility to the test and we’re excited to see that the work we created for our clients not only resonated with the market but with our peers as well. We’re immensely proud of our team for their incredible work and grateful to clients for their ongoing commitment and support. We look forward to continuing to build on this great foundation into 2021.”
