As hoola Modern Agencywe are honoured to be shortlisted as a finalist in seven categories at this year’s New Generation Social & Digital Media Awards. The categories include: Best Agency Community Engagement Manager, Social Whiz, Digital Brand of the Year, Best Use of a Podcast/Vlog to Promote a Brand, Most Innovative Social Media Campaign by a Small Agency, Most Innovative Digital Media Campaign by a Small Agency and Small Agency of the Year.

Founded in 2012 by Stephen Paxton, the New Generation Awards have become one of South Africa’s most prestigious digital media awards ceremonies. Every year, they acknowledge only the finest in local marketing and regularly attract entries from the world’s leading multinational agencies.

What distinguishes the New Generation Awards awards from their counterparts, is their specific focus on ingenuity and results and insight-based work. For Paxton, “a meaningful digital marketing experience is a smart idea executed brilliantly, with the facts to back it up.” The New Generation Awards champion these kinds of ground-breaking, innovative and strategic digital campaigns.

Upon entry, there is a rigorous adjudication process, in which at least four judges evaluate each entry using specific criteria, namely innovation, creativity, strategy, content, results and sales.

To have our work recognised and counted among the best in the country is quite remarkable and truly a testament to the hard work and brilliance of our team.

Be sure to tune in on October 4th to catch the live stream of the event.
