Mace is the only nominee from Africa in both the Broadcast and Changing The World Frame By Frame categories.
The 'Here’s To The US in Every Tusker' campaign has already picked up an African Cristal Film Grand Prix, two One Show Craft Merits, Creative Circle Ad of the Month, Ad of the Week from MarkLives, and a Special Mention on iDidTht’s SA Film Reel.
Mace thanked everyone who made the campaign a success, including Net#work’s creative team, consisting of producer Caroline Switala, creative director Tim Beckerling, and chief creative officer Mike Schalit, as well as DOP Fabian Vettiger, editor Stephen du Plessis, visual-effects artist Blake Prinsloo, Sibot and Rob Brinkworth for the music and sound, and line producer Vjorn du Toit.
In 2016, Mace won two Young Director Awards – a Silver for The Gift in the Short Film category, and a Silver for The Bomb-Sniffing Rats Saving Lives in Mozambique in the Changing The World Frame By Frame category.
Since joining Egg Films, Mace has been directing campaigns for YouTube and Vodacom.
Young Director Award winners will be announced at the Cannes Marriott Theatre on Thursday, 22 June.
