Kuwait Advertising Awards Update

Post by Mark

The Kuwait Advertising Awards it currently taking place at the Salwa Events Hall near Marina Crescent. I just got a message from my sister who is at the awards ceremony. The event started 1 hour late at 7 and they started of with speeches, according to her its very boring. I received another message from another art director from my agency who is there and according to him the event actually turned out to be very formal, so Nataly was right when she said it was a formal event.

Update: My sis called me after the event finished. Basically out of 22 awards my agency (JWT) took half of them while Nats agency (Saatchi&Saatchi) took the other half. Just to make it clear out of all the awards Saatchi took none were for Kuwait work, and out of all the awards my agency took only 1 was for Kuwait. The event supposingly was very unorganized and chaotic, my sister should be posting about it tonight on her blog.

Kuwait Advertising Awards

Post by Mark

The Kuwait Advertising Awards are being held tomorrow at 6PM and its supposed to be formal wear. Who the fuck gets dressed formally for an evening out at 6PM? Why didn’t they make the awards show at like 9 or 10PM? Most of the agencies finish work at 5 or 5:30 but no one usually makes it out before 6PM. Even if I make it out at 5:30 by the time I get home its already 6 and then I need to shower, get dressed and leave it would already be 7PM!

Anyway, I hope I am allowed not to go to it. I really don’t like social events.

Update:
Its NOT formal. Nat told me formal and she heard it from her agency but its not true.

Results from Halo2 Frag Fest Round 3

Post by Mark

This was the team formation for round 3 of the Halo 2 Frag Fest was as follows:

Team Damen
Edjamacated Guy
Nibaq
Fadibou
Mark

Team Da Hui
Ozy
Ripping Fabric
Kyon
Ramsey

Results? Out of atleast 10 games we played, Team Damen didn’t even come close to winning a single one! We totally got our asses kicked. Next time we should split up Team Da Hui and mix and match between their team and ours. We are no competition at the moment. The grudge match between Ripping Fabric and Fadibou resulted in Ripping Fabric winning.
