SuperSport won a gold and three silver awards at the recently held international Sports Media Marketing Awards – the industry Oscars – held in New York.

SuperSport’s 'Transformers' campaign picked up the gold for best editing, while silvers were claimed for best TV campaign (SuperSport Olympics), best use of sound design (Transformers) and best use of music (SuperSport Olympics).

“I’m delighted,” said Katherine Hughes, SuperSport’s on-air manager. “This confirms that our talent is world class. Our team put in enormous work and to be recognised as one of the world leaders is both humbling and inspiring.”

The Sports Media Marketing Awards of PromaxBDA is a premier competition dedicated to celebrating the effectiveness and acknowledging the success of marketing, promotion and advertising professionals involved in the sports media marketing community.
