Awards and Accolades

Thanks to our continual dedication to producing the most beautiful and useful high-quality glass packaging, we have been fortunate to receive many awards and recognition over the years. In both the consumer and commercial packaging spheres, positive feedback from satisfied customers is the best reward we could ever ask for – but winning awards is nice, too!

Here are just a few of our proud accomplishments: 

Our Perfectly Made For Each Other TV commercial scooped a Craft Certificate for cinematography in the Film Craft Category of this year’s prestigious Loeries Awards, 2020.

The Loeries is the highest accolade for creativity and innovation.  Our highly acclaimed TV commercial was a finalist in five different categories, being Cinematography, Direction, Editing, Original Music and Sound Design, and Special Visual Effects. We could not have attained this accolade without the help of our super team – thank you to all who were involved in this production. Grey South Africa and Bioscope Films.
