Sri Lanka Institute of Marketing had recently held their annual ceremony to tribute the Sri Lanka’s best creative talents. SLIM Awards 2005.
The agency Leo Burnett had walked out with most of the Gold Medallions making it their Night of Glory. Congrats for you guys where I’ve got couple of friends working.
The Medals tally is as shown below.
(Sorry 😦 the pictures are somewhat unclear)
Meanwhile I was trying to locate my early place Advantage Sri Lanka in the list. I know that they have gone through a change and must have altered their name which I wasn’t sure what.
So if the guys in this picture is belong to Rediffusion DY&R, thats it. Those are some of my remaining old friends and teachers in advertising, from Suminda to Srinath gone now to JWT and elsewhere, shown are Ajith, Shafee, Ravi and the clan I used to work with. Cheers!
So the story goes. I remember I loved those magnificent nights. Until lately I used to get a free-in though not anymore since I am not in the trade and lost many of my contacts.
Anyway I hope that the next year at least someone will take me there back to the memories! 🙂
