Loerie awards: Travelling show opens at museum

2009-05-19 00:00

LAST year’s award-winning advertising campaigns are celebrated in the Loeries Travelling Exhibition, which can be seen at the Natal Museum in Jabu Ndlovu (Loop) Street, Pietermaritzburg until May 28.

Charmain Naidoo, assistant director of exhibition and technical services, said it was the first time the exhibition has made a stop at the museum.

“We are very excited to be showcasing the work of previous Loeries winners,” she added. “We have never showcased anything like the Loeries Travelling Exhibition before, so we believe it will generate a lot of interest.”

Speaking at the launch yesterday, Zakes Dube, regional general manager of SABC KwaZulu-Natal, said it was important to fortify and celebrate South Africa’s creativity, which was why the broadcaster had decided to back the annual awards. He added: “This exhibition is a testimony to the talent we have in this country.”

The Natal Museum is open Monday to Friday between 8.15 and 4.30 pm, Saturdays from 10 am to 4 pm and Sundays from 11 am to 3 pm.
