Specifically, with the Loerie Gold win, which was a joint entry by Cheil UAE and Cheil KSA, having won at the first time of entering for Cheil KSA, is a testament to our focus on insight, creativity and technology which informs all of our work here in the region.”

Speaking on the recent wins, Omar Al-Jabi, Executive Creative Director at Cheil MENA RHQ said, “This is the first time we submitted entries at Loeries and to win is fantastic. I’m proud of our creative community in the region. They’ve been relentless in creating great stories and leveraging on the most relevant channel.
