The African festival, which received over 150 submissions across 16 categories, was hosted at Cape Town’s new critically acclaimed Museum of Contemporary Art, Zeitz MOCAA.

A total of 18 winners walked away with metal: 12 in the ‘Branded Content’ category, which included sub-categories like Animation, Casting, Cinematography, etc.; five winners in the ‘Special Categories’, which included Low Budget, Long Form, Music Video, etc. sub-categories; and one Grand Prix winner, namely Beats by Dre – ‘Above The Noise’ which was directed by Terence Neale, produced by Park Pictures and created by agency JohnXHannes New York.

Production Company of the Year’ was awarded to 03:07, and ‘Agency of the Year’ to FCB Africa.

Francisco Condorelli, Director of Ciclope, says, “Our panel of local and international Jury Members was impressed by the quality of work submitted across the continent; submissions which showcased not only innovative and creative execution – but importantly – technical expertise.

“This year’s entries have set a high benchmark for future regional legs, and we are encouraged by the success of the inaugural African edition of Ciclope, as well as the support received from the local industry.

“I would like to extend a thank you to all jury members, speakers, sponsors, organisers, attendees and entrants for playing a part in making Ciclope Africa a reality. We look forward to the next one,” says Condorelli.

The winners in each category, as well as the Grand Prix winner, will receive an automatic entry to the flagship festival, which will be hosted in Berlin later this year.
