Agency: PENCIL Advertising, Kuwait
Chief Creative Director: Gilbert S. Semillano
“Published” refers to ATL (Above-The-Line) media such as magazines and newspapers. A product “catalogue” is neither a magazine nor a newspaper – it is a BTL (Below-The-Line) item and this disqualifies the work from being entered into any kind of creativity competition.
Gilbert Semillano admitted on February 13th, 2008 at 10:15 am that the ad was not published in the following statment: “Louai, you’re searching in the wrong direction, this wasn’t released in the newspaper, it was published in SONY’S product catalogue issue November 2007”.
