Africa: Netman TV AD Scoops Marketing Award

Windhoek — MTC won an award for its television commercial for Netman 4G at the fifth Annual Africacom 2012 awards in Cape Town on Wednesday night.

The Netman 4G TV commercial was in the Best Marketing Campaign category. It won second prize.

The annual Africacom Conference is Africa's premier annual telecommunications, media and ICT conference and exhibition and the award is a true celebration of vision and progress in the African telecommunications industry.

MTC managing director, Miguel Geraldes, said the award was earned in a tough competition and all mobile giants were nominated in the category.

The first prize went to Prezence Digital, a prominent and successful digital media company in its own right. Other nominated media companies included Orange and Etisalat.

"This award is not just for MTC, but it speaks volumes about the creativity of the Namibian people and we are happy to accept this on behalf of the Namibian people and our creative team," Geraldes said.

Emily Martyr of AfricaCom Awards commented that competition was fierce this year with a record number of entries, up 60 percent on last year. "The quality and number of entries in these awards is testament to the importance of this sector across Africa," she said.
