We’re sliding into 2020 with the first IDIDTHAT.co Craft Awards for the year. And who better to kick things off than Black River FC’s Executive Creative Director, Roanna Williams. With over twenty years of industry experience and the trophy cabinet to back it up, we couldn’t think of anyone more suited for the position. Thank you Roanna, as always, we are not worthy!
Our iDidTht Craft Awards for August were judged by Creative Director at TBWA Hunt Lascaris, Nikki Taylor-Garrett. Fresh from serving on the jury at Cannes, Nikki brings over a decade of industry experience, working with some of the top brands while simultaneously creating disruptive work for non-profits. We couldn’t be prouder that she agreed to make our Craft Awards her side-hustle. Thank you Nikki!
Every month iDidTht.com teams up with an industry leader to award South Africa’s best in Film Craft. Even though July's judge doesn’t need to look at his own awards (and there are plenty) to validate his success (which is huge), we’re practically giddy when he agrees to judge ours. Thank you to the wonderful Ahmed Tilly 😘
Every month iDidTht.com teams up with an industry leader to award South Africa’s best in Film Craft. This month’s Guest Judge was John Davenport. When not polishing his roughly 20 Cannes Lions awards he’s being the badass CCO at Havas, a political writer, philanthropist, and sculptor… oh, and he also happened to put the ‘Davenport’ in Ireland/Davenport. 🔥If he wasn’t so damn nice we’d think he’s showing off.
