Sanlam Woordfees ‘Valiant Swart – Die Mystic Boer Kort Dokumentêr’
IDIDTHAT Guest Judge: Donovan Bryan, Executive Creative Director at Owen Kessel Leo Burnett
March 2016

Judges Comment: “So the first piece that really stood out for me was ‘Valiant Swart ‘Die Mystic Boer Kort Dokumentêr’ for Sanlam Woordfees by Picture Tree director Wim Steytler. This is beautifully put together. I loved the way the graphics were included – they were so considered and thoughtful. I thought that Valiants performance was great. A really, really beautiful piece of direction where every element of the communication is deliberate and works hard. I loved this piece.”
