We also run an Award Scheme to reward outstanding creativity within the marketing communication business in Ghana. The awards scheme is to showcase how advertising works. Our most famous awards event is the GONG GONG AWARDS. The Gong Gong Awards is the flagship industry event for the Advertising Industry in Ghana. Over the years the awards have established benchmarks for excellence and ingenuity, rewarding creativity and outstanding innovative works across all sectors of the industry.
