King James Group proves digital leadership with 13 Bookmark wins

Johannesburg, 17 March 2017: For the second year in a row the King James Group put in one of the top performances at the Bookmark Awards and once again was among the most awarded on the night. The total of 13 awards included 1 Gold, 7 Silver and 5 bronze for clients including SanlamCity of Cape TownDemocratic AllianceRoscommons Group and Visa.

The King James Group’s specialist digital agencies Punk and Society both played key parts in delivering award-winning work alongside the wider group.

“We continue to punch well above our weight. Translating 13 out of 23 finalists into metal is an impressive percentage. The really encouraging part was the breadth of the awards we picked up. From social to campaign to film to web to platform to mobile, I don't think there is an agency in the country that can compete with the quality and range of integrated services that the King James Group offers. And, formidably, there's more to be added in the coming months.” Said Matt Ross, Founder of Punk.

“We’ve put a lot of work into building some great specialist digital team’s at King James and then figuring out how they integrate over the last few years. Our continued strong performance shows we’re on the right track and we have something special to offer our clients.” Said Dan Pinch, ECD and founder of Society (the social media agency of the King James Group).
