The Creative Circle represents agencies and only agencies in South Africa, not clients, advertisers or media owners. Our focus is absolutely single-minded when it comes to promoting the best interests of our members.

Creative Circle accreditation is an important stamp of your creative ability; recognising your agency as one of the best in the country.

What are the benefits of Creative Circle membership?

  1. Automatic entry into the annual Creative Circle rankings which are based on your performance at our endorsed global award shows, including Award of The Year, Cannes, D&AD, Loeries and One Show. The ranking is essential for your pitch process and the AdReview Awards when jurors vote on Best Small/Medium/Large agency.
  2. Only members can enter the monthly and annual awards; the points of which contribute to your overall creative ranking.
  3. Work entered into the Creative Circle Awards doesn’t need to be re-uploaded into The Loerie Awards system and vice versa. 
  4. Your creatives are eligible to judge Creative Circle monthly and annual awards, Cannes, D&AD, Loeries and One Show. This kind of experience will enhance their ability to judge work internally, resulting in an even higher standard of work for your agency.
  5. Joining Creative Circle Executive Committee is only available to members.
  6. Leveraging the working relationship with the Loeries to assist with all administration, processes and marketing being handled by the Loeries for the Creative Circle Monthly & Annual Awards.
