Two young media professionals at PHD Ghana have won the chance to represent West and Central Africa (WECA) at the 2019 Cannes Young Lions Media Competition during the Cannes Lions Festival this month.

Ebenezer Arthur and Magdaline Afutu won Gold in the Young Lions Media WECA competition at the Creativity Week awards event held recently in Lagos, Nigeria and will compete with other young brilliant minds from media and communications agencies across the globe during the 2019 Cannes Lions.

The PHD Ghana team also took home Silver from the Young Pitcher Integrated Competition category of the Pitcher Awards, also part of Creativity Week. The other members of the PHD Ghana team working alongside Arthur and Afutu were Emmanuel Addo and Boma Eli.

PHD Ghana’s CEO Bright Ladzekpo commented: “The outstanding performance by this young team is testament to our focus on professional skills development with continuous investment in training programmes that prepare our young local staff to be able to compete favourably with their peers globally. Their achievement reinforces PHD’s position in the WECA region as a communications planning and media buying agency built on a culture of smart strategic thinking and creative innovation.”
