Kinsale Shark Advertising Awards

The 50th anniversary of the Kinsale Shark advertising festival took place last weekend by the banks of the River Bandon. The international advertising, media and design community descended on Kinsale, the medieval Irish town, to attend one of the oldest independent advertising festivals in the world.

The festival jury panel, chaired by Trevor Beattie, loved Grand Visual’s work for the National Centre for Domestic Violence and also for the Microloan Foundation. Microloan’s ‘Pennies for Life’ achieved 5 gongs in total including 4 gold’s for International Outdoor Craft (Best Interactive), International Integrated Campaign, International Live Event, and Digital Outdoor, as well as a bronze in the Physical Digital category.
