Winning work for Film Lions
1 x Bronze Film Lion for Ogilvy Johannesburg // Topsy Foundation – Kevin
Subsequent to the making of the ‘Kevin’ ad, the Topsy Foundation has redefined itself as an organisation, and is no longer involved in the treatment of HIV/AIDS. Therefore we will not feature a link to the ad as it was a donation appeal. They are in the process of donating the ad to another brand, when that is complete we will re-upload the work.Topsy’s new focus is on the care of orphans and child-headed households arising in these HIV/AIDS affected communities. To help their new cause, visit
