Tan Hong Ming takes Best Film of the Year 2008 in Gunn Report

PATTAYA: For the second year running, ADFEST was proud to support The International Advertising CUP, a unique global awards festival that celebrates cultural diversity in a globalised world.

In 2007, the first-ever International Advertising CUP took place in Valencia, Spain. In November 2008, the second International Advertising CUP took place in Bled, Slovenia, where Piyush Pandey was Jury President.

Pandey showcased the top winners from Asia Pacific at The CUP 2008 during a presentation at ADFEST.

“The Cup is an important award show because it leads with the philosophy that local cultures and ideas are extremely important and therefore must be given due attention and acknowledgement,” says Piyush Pandey, Executive Chairman & National Creative Director at Ogilvy & Mather Mumbai.

The CUP is the brainchild of advertising legend Michael Conrad, who believes agencies should never forget the influence of local cultures on their ideas, in spite of an international trend towards globalization. The CUP’s tagline is ‘Genius Loci’, which means the spirit and culture of a local place.

Today, Donald Gunn also unveiled the Asia Pacific Edition of The Gunn Report 2008, which featured the most awarded agencies from the region. At the ADFEST Awards Presentation on today, Donald Gunn and Emma Wilkie presented Commemorative Certificates endorsed by ADFEST to the region’s most awarded agencies.
