Cartoon Network Africa Wins A SABRE Gold Award For Cartoon Network Buddy Network

Cartoon Network Africa has won an African SABRE (Superior Achievement in Branding, Reputation & Engagement) Gold Award in the Public Education category for their anti-bullying campaign – Cartoon Network Buddy Network. The initiative encourages children to be friendly to each other and report and speak out against bullying in schools. Cartoon Network Buddy Network was rolled out for the first time in Africa last year after a successful rollout in Europe.

In Africa, the campaign was developed in co-operation with Childline South Africa. Olympic gold medalist track and field sprinter, Wayde van Niekerk represented the campaign as a Buddy Network ambassador. The campaign made use of animation, video content and storytelling to inform kids about bullying and how they can put an end to it. The award was presented to Robyn De Villiers, chairman and CEO of Burson-Marsteller Africa (Cartoon Network’s PR agency for Africa) and Aude Bousseau, the marketing and PR manager of Turner Africa. Cartoon Network Africa has also won a 2017 African Excellence Award in the “Content Marketing” category for Buddy Network, the 2017 African Excellence Awards ceremony will take place on 29th June in Johannesburg, South Africa.

The Powerpuff Girls Art Factory Exhibit Launch Night In South Africa

Thursday this week (06/04/2017) was the opening night for The Powerpuff Girls Art Factory Exhibit at 91 Loop in Cape Town, South Africa. The Powerpuff Girls art exhibition was organised by Cartoon Network Africa and Cape Town’s First Thursdays cultural experience. The art exhibition features unique Powerpuff Girls screen-prints by ten of South Africa’s best artists and illustrators; artists include Tandiwe Tsabala, Ello Xray Eyez, Quondile Dlamini, Jade Klara, Tyla Mason, Ndumiso Nyoni, Karabo Poppy Moletsane, Anja Nanna Venter, Kgabo Mametja and Jeanne Fourie. The exhibit is now open to the public at 91 Loop in Cape Town until Tuesday 2nd May 2017. The artwork at the event celebrates creativity, expression, empowerment and fun, which are traits The Powerpuff Girls are often associated with.

Proceeds from artwork sales will be donated to Rock Girl – a local girl-led NGO (Non-Government Organisation) grassroots movement that advocates woman’s rights and also aims to reduce violence against woman and girls. Just like the Powerpuff Girls, the organisation’s volunteers are empowered to tackle the challenges in their lives. Rock Girl’s “Safe Spaces” public art and education initiative creates symbolic safe spaces in the form of specially designed benches in partnership with artists, designers and companies. Rock Girl unveiled their latest safe space bench at the opening night at the exhibition, the bench features a Powerpuff Girls themed design by mosaic artist Lovell Friedman. After the art exhibition, the bench will be relocated to the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront in the city.

At opening night, visitors were greeted by The Powerpuff Girls and singer Toya Delazy did a live performance of the African version of the Powerpuff Girls theme song as well as a few of her own songs. Visitors also got to enjoy tasty treats and had the opportunity to create their very own custom-designed Powerpuff Girl tote bag at the screen-printing bar.
