Politically incorrect creativity


Seriously now…where and when were these ads published? No one is questioning the creativity of the concepts (as it is very much a subjective matter according to most critiques) nor is anyone questioning the quality of execution. What is being questioned is the legitimacy of participating with ghost ads (ads that never ran or ads that ran once due to loopholes in the awards criteria) and if they should be allowed to compete with real ads (ads that ran for real, for real clients without any special doctoring  for the awards). In my personal view the playing field should be leveled and everyone should play by the rules. It is not accepted to win by any means and take the industry for granted, risk the reputation of the award organizers (as happened in the Dubai Lynx scandal also known as the Lynx Gate). Winning by cheating has a snowball effect, they win, then publicize their win thorough PR and Advertising campaigns, which attracts more clients (depriving you from a fair chance at winning business). Your friends in the industry risk becoming redundant while copycats are get promoted and earn the big bucks as a result of either ignorance of their management or consent of their upper management!!!

ANUBIS was a very old god of the ancient Egyptians, universally worshipped throughout the land and became considered the gatekeeper and ruler of the underworld; the “Guardian of the veil“ he was “Lord of the Cleansing Room” and the opener of the roads of the North. “He observed the weighing of the deceased’s heart against the feather of Maat [Truth] and reported his findings to the jury of the gods.
